A Newsletter for the GME Community
From the DIO
What role do residents and fellows play on
our health care teams? Are they integral
members of the care model, or are they
providers who supplement the team in the
interests of their own learning? The new
accreditation standards for our programs
raise the expectation that these physiciansin-training will be central to the care of patients and also directly involved in institutional efforts around quality, patient safety, and error reporting. These are areas in which it is difficult to engage the
professional staff, let alone trainees. Competing with these
expectations are regulatory requirements that are serving to
marginalize our learners. Influences like duty hour restrictions,
higher standards for attending physician documentation, and
requirements for attending DEA numbers on e-prescriptions all
serve to diminish the role and responsibility of our trainees. Is
the pendulum swinging too far from autonomy to supervision,
creating an environment in which it is difficult to train our
learners to do what they must learn to do? As we engage in
debate about the roles trainees play in specific situations, we
all must continue to advocate for an appropriate level of responsibility and engagement for our residents and fellows.
Appropriate for patient care, but also appropriate for their
education and for their transition to independent practice.

2015/2016 Resident/Fellow Stipend Rates, Contract, Benefit Premiums
The 2015/2016 resident and fellow stipend rates, contract and
benefit premiums will be voted on during the November 25,
2014 GMEC meeting. Once approved, all will be posted to the
GME website.
AIR Survey Completed
Data submission for the Annual Institutional Review (AIR) survey is now closed and we are happy to report that the completion rate for this important survey was extremely high. We
would like to personally thank the many people who played a
part in completing these surveys, including all Program Coordinators, Program Directors, members of Program Evaluation
Committees, and others.
At this point, all programs should have received PDF copies of
their completed surveys (please let Dr. Michael Cullen know if
you did not receive yours). We hope that these completed
surveys will be a useful guide for program improvement, and
in preparation for self-study visits. Centrally, we have begun
the effort to aggregate all of this data into a central database.
This database will allow us to identify, in some detail, institutional-level trends in resident performance, graduate performance, faculty development and program quality. In the near
future, there will be opportunities to discuss how this data,
and the trends identified, can best be used to improve the
clinical learning environment of both trainees and faculty. As
always, we welcome your ideas and engagement in this discussion.
As is the case with any new effort to collect data, there have
been some challenges along the way. We have been keeping
track of your suggestions for improving the data collection
process, and will use them to improve the process next year.
In the near future, we will also hold a debriefing session to
discuss some of these opportunities with you.
Once again, thank you for your efforts in completing this important survey.

New Program Coordinator Orientation
GME Program Coordinators play a vital role in managing their
program(s) and trainee(s). GME Administration recognizes the
Coordinator as an important partner, as do Program Directors
and other stakeholders. To offer Coordinators a supportive onboarding experience that provides them with the
information, tools, and resources necessary to being successful in their position, GME Administration has established bimonthly New Program Coordinator Orientation Sessions.
The purpose of this orientation is to introduce new Program
Coordinators, Assistant Program Coordinators, etc. to the role
they play in relation to central GME, provide them with information about the ACGME and NAS, help them understand
their role in the onboarding/advancing of trainees, and other
relevant topics. This session is meant to supplement the orientation provided by the department/program.
Education Managers and Department Administrators are supportive of these sessions. GME Administration expects that all
new Coordinators will attend this session within the first two
to three months of employment. GME staff may also schedule
1:1 meetings with new coordinators to discuss complex topics
(i.e. program agreements, onboarding checklist requirements, visa management, etc.).
Additional information:
Who: All new Program Coordinators, Assistant Program
Coordinators, and any other program staff who may
benefit;
What: GME Orientation for New Program Coordinators;
Where: B-646 Mayo (unless otherwise specified);
When: Second Tuesday of every-other month, from 11:00
AM-2:00 PM (immediately following the Coordinator
meeting - lunch will be served);
Note: The bi-monthly orientation session may be canceled
based upon need.
For additional information please see the
"Coordinator Onboarding and Orientation Resources" web
page under "Program Coordinator Resources" on
the GME website (http://www.gme.umn.edu/
programresources/CoordinatorNewCoordinatorToolkitforSuccess/home.html).
Onboarding/Advancing Update
The GME office facilitated its first year of centralized onboarding for new and advancing trainees for AY 2014-2015.
Residents and fellows starting new programs in 2014 have
successfully completed on-boarding requirements and advancing residents and fellows have completed advancement
requirements. The centralization of trainee transitions has
led to visibility in many areas that can be improved. The GME
office is in the midst of several process-improvement projects
(influenced in part by program coordinator and resident/
fellow survey results regarding onboarding/advancing for AY
14-15) which will lead to a smoother resident and fellow
transition process for the trainees themselves, programs, and
other UMN stakeholders for AY 2015-2016. If you have any
questions regarding transition requirements for trainees,
contact Tanya Madson: [email protected], 612-626-4959.
Resident/Fellow Parking During Gopher and Viking Football Home Games
University faculty and staff recently received an announcement from Parking and Transportation Services regarding
how their personal contracts will be managed during Gopher
and Viking Football home games this fall. That announcement does NOT apply to residents/fellows. Parking arrangements for resident/fellow contracts are being managed
differently:
Resident/Fellow Parking in the OAK STREET and WASHINGTON AVENUE RAMPS on Gopher and Viking Football Game
Days:
 Washington Avenue Ramp: Residents/fellows who have
a contract (their own or through their department) in the
Washington Avenue Ramp are NOT able to park in the
Washington Avenue Ramp during home Gopher and
Viking football home games. The relocation facility for
the Washington Avenue Ramp is the East River Road
Garage on game day for work purposes ONLY.
4

Oak Street Ramp Contracts Purchased through University Parking Services: Residents and fellows who have a
contract (their own or through their department) for the
Oak Street Ramp that was purchased through University
Parking Services ARE able to park in the Oak Street Ramp
during home Gopher and Viking football games for work
purposes ONLY. They need to enter the ramp at the Oak
Street entrance so they can use the card readers to enter. University identification and keycard are required for
access.
Parking and Transportation Services will remind and advise parking attendants and traffic control staff that there
are legitimate parking contracts FOR THE RESIDENTS AND
FELLOWS at Oak Street Ramp on football game
days. Residents and fellows who encounter problems with
parking access on game days should call 612-626PARK (or ask the attendant to call 612-626-PARK) and
they will be helped. Use the name VICKI NELSON, stating
that she has approved an exemption for residents and
fellows to have access to their contract spaces in the Oak
Street ramp.

Oak Street Ramp Contracts Purchased through UMMC/
Fairview Parking Office: Oak Street Ramp parking contracts that were purchased through the UMMC/Fairview
Parking Office(individual and departmental) are being relocated to the UMMC Patient/Visitor Ramp on game
days for work purposes ONLY, per arrangements made
between the University and the Fairview Parking Director,
Jeff Karr.
Resident/Fellow Parking in the UMMC PATIENT/VISITOR
RAMP (University Campus) on Gopher and Viking Football
Game Days:
 Parking space is limited in the UMMC Patient/Visitor
Ramp (University campus) and must be available to patients and visitors. After providing a $25 deposit for a
parking card, residents and fellows are permitted to park
in the UMMC Patient/Visitor Ramp on the University campus on Gopher and Viking Football game days for work
purposes ONLY. Parking Department personnel will be
monitoring the entrance. Video surveillance is in place
and violators will be charged for their parking. Residents
and fellows are required to use their UMMC identification
badge, programmed with parking access, to enter and exit
the ramp. Contact Mira Jurich with questions
([email protected]).

If you plan to attend a Gopher or Viking football game,
you may purchase a pre-paid parking coupon for a reduced rate of $10, during regular business hours prior to
game day, from the UMMC parking office (Mayo B-340 or
Riverside East Building MB218). This parking coupon is
valid in the Patient/Visitor Ramp on the East Bank campus. The coupons are available on a limited basis. No employee discount will be available at the gate on game day.
If you do not have the pre-paid coupon, you will be
charged the General Public parking rate of $20-$40.

Resident Leadership Academy Established
We are pleased to announce the establishment of the Resident Leadership Academy (RLA) at the University of Minnesota. This is an off-shoot of the UMMS-sponsored leadership
program for physicians (the Emerging Physician Leadership
Program, or EPLP).
The aims of the program are to:
 Teach skills relevant to organizational leadership to a
promising group of residents;
 Engage this group of residents in institutional goals and
priorities, where they can play a significant contributing
role;
 Invest in the development of trainees who have the potential to be future leaders at this institution beyond their
residency training.
The program is one year in length. It meets for one day each
month from September 2014-July 2015 (without a session in
December) for a total of ten seminars. The curriculum is casebased with quality improvement initiatives as a guiding theme.
We also devote time during each session to the exploration of
leadership principles with the executive leadership of University of Minnesota Health and its community partners.
Seasonal Influenza Immunization
ALL RESIDENTS AND FELLOWS ARE REQUIRED TO HAVE A FLU
SHOT AND REPORT ON THEIR VACCINATION STATUS BY NOVEMBER 1, 2014.
Our affiliated hospitals (e.g., Regions Hospital, Children’s Hospitals and Clinics of Minnesota, University of Minnesota Medical Center) require seasonal flu vaccines for all providers. Consistent with these policies as well as those governing immunization status of AHC trainees working in clinical areas, we
require all trainees in our GME programs to document seasonal influenza vaccination or a valid medical contraindication.
You can obtain an influenza vaccine free of charge through
these methods (click on links for more information):
 Boynton Health Service Clinic: http://www.bhs.umn.edu/
public-health/flu.htm;
 Affiliated Hospital Clinics: https://docs.google.com/a/
umn.edu/document/
d/1cfVAgu1FR4qxnzryCSqdFiYdQq8K3pKGEXw4oFaOEMQ
/edit?pli=1#heading=h.kxwyj6xxjx7r.
5
The VA Medical Center, Children’s Hospitals and Clinics of
Minnesota, Abbott-Northwestern Hospital, Park Nicollet Medical Center, and Hennepin County Medical Center all offer
influenza vaccines to all who work there including residents
and fellows.
In addition to receiving a flu vaccine, you must also report
that you have done so. This allows us to attest to the immunization status of trainees to affiliates. You will be receiving an
RMS checklist step to complete. The step contains a link to a
VERY SHORT survey to complete AFTER you have received
your flu shot OR if you have a medical contraindication to the
flu shot.
Process:
 Get your flu shot
 Log-in to RMS and view the 14/15 UMN GME Fall Requirements checklist.
RMS Log-in Information
New-Innovation (RMS) Website: https://www.newinnov.com/Login/
Institution Login: mmcgme
*Contact Tanya Madson at [email protected] if you
have forgotten your password or if you have issues accessing the Influenza Shot Survey.
 View the “14/15 UMN GME Influenza Vaccination Confirmation” RMS checklist step. (This must be completed by
ALL trainees, including those with medical contraindications.)
 Access the Survey within the RMS checklist step via the
link provided. Once you have submitted your survey,
check the box next to the RMS step to mark as complete.
All influenza vaccinations MUST be completed by November 1,
2014. You will receive RMS reminders during the next few
weeks. Last year, over 99% of our trainees documented their
status and over 98% of our trainees were vaccinated. It was a
remarkably successful effort that I hope we will duplicate this
year.
Let me know if you have questions. I appreciate your efforts
to comply with this important health and patient safety initiative.
