Each SI’s GMEC comprises the Designated Institutional Official (DIO) and Associate DIOs, Programme Directors (PDs) and Associate PDs, peer-nominated residents, administrators and any other members of the faculty deemed appropriate by the SI.
The DIO leads the organised administrative system that overseas all residency training programmes in the SI. The goal of the DIO is to establish an educational experience that would enable residents to acquire the necessary competencies and attitudes in order to practice independently in their chosen specialty. An associate DIO may be appointed to represent various participating sites.
The PD is the person responsible for all aspects of the relevant residency programme. The PD provides the educational environment necessary to achieve the learning objectives of the programme. Associate PDs may be appointed for larger residency programmes.
Core Clinical Faculty Members (CCFMs) are individuals formally appointed to teach residents in their respective specialties.
Each SI also appoints Institutional and Programme Coordinators to manage administrative tasks related to residency training.
