The Resident Council at Wayne State University is a forum for residents to communicate and exchange information with each other relevant to their ACGME-accredited programs and their learning and working environment. The council meets bimonthly and is comprised of peer‑elected residents from each program. All residents are welcome to attend these meetings and have the opportunity to raise a concern to the council.
The council serves as an integral line of communication between residents, faculty and staff. WSU GME is committed to advocating the highest quality of education and patient care experiences to all residents in an atmosphere of safety, mutual respect and teamwork. The council is a venue in which residents can organize events and bring issues and concerns in a non-threatening and confidential manner to the GME Office and the GMEC. Representatives share ideas and educational experiences to further professional development and increase the quality of medical practice. The council president is a member of the GMEC and he or his designee presents information from RC-WSU meetings to the GMEC. The president or designee is also a member of the GMEC Subcommittee for Compliance and Improvement.
