Item 101

Revised April 2002; Updated July 2010

The Wright State University Boonshoft School of Medicine (BSOM) is committed to excellence in both education and medical care. As a sponsoring institution for graduate medical education, the Boonshoft School of Medicine is responsible for providing an organized educational program with guidance and supervision of the resident, facilitating the resident's ethical, professional and personal development while ensuring safe and appropriate care for patients.

As the parent institution for sponsored residency and fellowship programs, the BSOM is responsible for administration, for monitoring quality and assuring compliance with accreditation requirements, and for appointing the program director. Each program has a fiscal agent hospital which is responsible for employing the civilian residents in a program. Military residents are employed by the USAF.

Activities of the residents in the hospitals are coordinated through the departments of medical education of the respective hospitals and the BSOM. Employing hospitals are responsible for all salary and fringe benefits.

The Wright State University Boonshoft School of Medicine, hereafter referred to as the "BSOM," operates graduate medical education programs in cooperation with its affiliated teaching hospitals and other health care institutions, hereafter referred to as "Hospitals." Physicians selected as participants in the program are offered an educational experience approved by the Accreditation Council on Graduate Medical Education and shall be designated as "Residents."

The policies in this manual apply to residency programs sponsored by the BSOM.

Item 102
Principles of Medical Ethics / Resident Interactions with Vendors

Updated: March 2009

The medical profession has long subscribed to a body of ethical statements developed primarily for the benefit of the patient. As a member of this profession, a physician must recognize responsibility to patients first and foremost, as well as to society, to other health professionals, and to self. The following Principles adopted by the American Medical Association are not laws, but standards of conduct which define the essentials of honorable behavior for the physician.

Principles of Medical Ethics

  1. A physician shall be dedicated to providing competent medical care, with compassion and respect for human dignity and rights.
  2. A physician shall uphold the standards of professionalism, be honest in all professional interactions, and strive to report physicians deficient in character or competence, or engaging in fraud or deception, to appropriate entities.
  3. A physician shall respect the law and also recognize a responsibility to seek changes in those requirements which are contrary to the best interests of the patient.
  4. A physician shall respect the rights of patients, colleagues, and other health professionals, and shall safeguard patient confidences and privacy within the constraints of the law.
  5. A physician shall continue to study, apply, and advance scientific knowledge, maintain a commitment to medical education, make relevant information available to patients, colleagues, and the public, obtain consultation, and use the talents of other health professionals when indicated.
  6. A physician shall, in the provision of appropriate patient care, except in emergencies, be free to choose whom to serve, with whom to associate, and the environment in which to provide medical care.
  7. A physician shall recognize a responsibility to participate in activities contributing to the improvement of the community and the betterment of public health.
  8. A physician shall, while caring for a patient, regard responsibility to the patient as paramount.
  9. A physician shall support access to medical care for all people.

Resident Interactions with Vendors and Industry

Physicians' first obligation is to the patient over all other considerations. Physicians must identify and minimize conflicts of interest that may be at odds with the best interest of patients. Interactions with vendors are fraught with such potential conflicts of interest.

The Wright State University Boonshoft School of Medicine policy defines the ethical standards that will be expected of the Boonshoft School of Medicine and its administrators, faculty, and staff when interacting with pharmaceutical companies and medical device manufacturers. Resident physicians are also expected to follow these standards. See Policy 20: Pharmaceutical/Medical Device Industry Conflict of Interest Policy

Item 103
Graduate Medical Education Committee

Updated: July 2010

The Graduate Medical Education Committee (GMEC) is responsible for monitoring and advising on all aspects of residency education. Voting membership is comprised of the program directors from sponsored and affiliated GME programs, the directors of medical education of teaching hospitals, the assistant dean for faculty and clinical affairs (designated institutional official), and resident representatives nominated and elected by their peers.

The responsibilities of the GMEC include:

  1. establishment and implementation of policies that affect all programs regarding the quality of education and the work environment for the residents in each program.
  2. improvement of the system of training residents and fellows by providing a collaborative environment for the member institutions to share information and expertise.
  3. regular internal review of all programs to assess their compliance with both the Institutional Requirements and Program Requirements of the relevant ACGME RRCs.
  4. assurance that each program establishes and implements written criteria and processes for the selection, evaluation, promotion, and dismissal of residents in compliance with ACGME Requirements as well as WSU, DAGMEC and fiscal agent policies.
  5. assurance of an educational environment in which residents may raise and resolve issues without fear of intimidation or retaliation.
  6. collecting of intra-institutional information.
  7. monitoring of the programs in establishing an appropriate work environment and the duty hours of residents.
  8. assurance that the residents' curriculum provides a regular review of ethical, socioeconomic, medical/legal, and cost-containment issues that affect GME and medical practice.
  9. promotion of resident participation in scholarly activity

The GMEC meets monthly.
