Sateia, H.F., Myers, C.G., Garibaldi, B.T., & Desai, S.V. (2020, October). Defining GME culture to inform targeted interventions. Proposal accepted for American Medical Association GME Innovations Summit, San Francisco, CA.
Much is being done nationally to address wellbeing in GME and fine-tune the learning environment. Ideas are shared at national meetings and in online forums. However, discussions inevitably turn to the challenges of applying what has worked at one institution to a different environment that may share similar frustrations but have other opportunities. Defining and disseminating these best practices remains important but this approach will be met with limited success until we have a way to define the learning environment and more specifically, the culture within an institution. This will allow for a more informed approach to addressing wellbeing locally and ultimately, advance efforts nationally.
