AAMC Uniform Resident Rotation Agreement (February 22, 2018)
Medical resident rotations are vital to graduate medical education. According to the ACGME, residents now rotate to more than 5,000 participating sites each year. In a 2016 survey, about half of DIOs at AAMC-member institutions reported that the negotiations surrounding resident rotation agreements delay rotations. To help our members and others in the graduate medical education community have more time for education and training, the AAMC developed a uniform agreement to be used for resident rotations. This webinar will highlight the benefits of the agreement, and answer participants questions.
