GRA Core Competency Committee

The Core Competency Committee was created in order to review and revise “Core Competencies for Institutional GME Leaders/Designated Institutional Officials.” The members are tasked with updating it based on changes in the GME environment and the evolving role of the institutional GME leader.

Members will identify competencies that need revision, creation or deletion and ensure version 4 incorporates all elements required by the next accreditation system. Members are also charged with evaluating the current assessment of the competencies to assess if the method is appropriate and requires revision. At the completion of this project, the committee must make a presentation to the GRA Steering Committee and the GRA Membership at-large.

The committee is organized and overseen by the GRA Steering Committee.
