Supervision of residents includes those activities related to the supervision and instruction of persons enrolled in accredited intern and residency programs located at a specifically named hospital (this may include persons who carry the title of “fellow” in the School of Medicine). For example; teaching clinical procedures, rounds, and conferences, as well as preparing for and leading grand rounds.

Included are:
(a) The time faculty and support staff spend in recruiting, scheduling rotation, and other support activities of the residents.

(b) The time in the clinic, physician office, or operating room that is additional time spent delivering patient care due to the presence and supervision of residents.

(c) A resident working in the physician’s office. The location of the office (and the effort) and the clinic’s funding must be taken into consideration to determine if GME may still be claimed and if the funding provides reimbursement (for example; supervision of residents at Wohl Hospital Clinic is included).

(a) Time instructing residents in a non ACGME accredited program should not be charged to GME.
