Can we please talk about resident cell phone numbers being shared in AmIOn?
As a result of your feedback and guidance provided by the GME Committee, we have decided to proceed with a three-month pilot program with AmIOn to better evaluate the unique needs of residents/fellows. Residents/fellows will not be required to enter their cell phone number in AmIOn at this time but are strongly encouraged to do so. As clinicians, you rely on data, and so do we. The GME Executive Team will analyze the data and learning provided by this pilot to determine next steps. For the three-month period October 1 to December 31, GME residents and fellows will engage in a pilot program to collect data and feedback. Please contact your Program Director and/or Program Coordinator to opt in to this pilot program.
If our cell phones are posted to AmIOn, will GME provide a cell phone stipend?
We will put consideration of cell phone stipends on our agenda as we approach the upcoming budget.
What is being done about the paucity of food options at MedStar Georgetown University Hospital (MGUH)?
Having access to healthy food is important. Right now, our priority is to provide enhanced food options and availability to residents and fellows (at no cost) in the lounges and in the ORs.
Will there be a new cafeteria at MGUH in the pavilion?
There are no plans for a dedicated cafeteria in the new MGUH pavilion. GME will continue to provide food for house staff and are exploring how to better serve you in this regard. We are also working on standardizing food stipends for all MedStar Health residents and fellows in the coming year.
