EDI Subcommittee

The Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion Subcommittee was formed to enhance the educational environment for residents/fellows and to promote equity, diversity, and inclusion throughout the ACGME and non-ACGME-sponsored programs. The Subcommittee is charged with assessing the current state of EDI in Tulane’s residency and fellowship programs, including ensuring that each program has a current EDI statement, that implicit bias training is provided annually in each training program, and to assist with building pipelines for the recruitment of underrepresented medical students to medical school and graduate medical education training programs.

The Accreditation Subcommittee ensures GMEC oversight of accreditation requirements for GME residency and fellowship programs. In coordination with the Office of Graduate Medical Education, the Subcommittee is charged to identify program(s) to be subject to Special Review according to GMEC protocol that sets out criteria for recognizing program underperformance or areas of concern, to identify issues/areas of concern in the Annual Program Evaluations, make recommendations for improvement, and provide a quarterly update to the GMEC.

Accreditation Subcommittee (AS)


The Professionalism Subcommittee plays a role in addressing day-to-day professionalism issues residents experience at the School of Medicine and at clinical sites, including oversight of how program directors (PD), Chairs, and faculty respond to reported incidents at a department level, and how clinical sites address issues. The Subcommittee focuses on a global view of overall program culture and coordination with the School’s Professionalism/Environment of Learning Program and clinical departments to improve the educational environment for trainees and faculty.

The Faculty Development Subcommittee collaborates with the Office of Graduate Medical Education to provide training to program directors on GME and ACGME processes and procedure. This committee also creates and organizes opportunities for ongoing faculty development for all program directors, associate program directors, and core program faculty as needed or requested.
