Welcome from the DIO

Teresa Smith

Welcome to the SUNY Downstate Residency Program Coordinators Forum.  Our program coordinators are the backbone of our physician training programs, and bring the essential leadership required to produce doctors who go on to serve national and international patient populations. It is with great pride that we highlight our program coordinators' professional development and accomplishments through this forum.

We would like to sincerely thank every program coordinator for their dedication and contribution towards building excellence in Graduate Medical Education (GME). We, especially, acknowledge the planning committee and the collaboration across our affiliate hospital sites. Thank you to the College of Medicine for their continued support of GME.

As we look towards the future of GME, let us continue to thrive through community and personal development, remembering that as we pour into others, we must also pour into ourselves.
