The Partners Education Committee (PEC) works closely with the Brigham and Women’s Education Committee (BWHEC) and the Massachusetts General Hospital Graduate Medical Education Committee (GMEC) to support and oversee the teaching mission.
PEC is responsible for education policy development, approval of new training programs, and strategic initiatives. The committee also considers issues related to trainee salary and benefits, and system-wide educational resources.
The hospital-based committees (BWHEC and GMEC) focus on a broad range of educational issues. Careful attention is paid to the quality of education through oversight of internal GME program reviews, ACGME accreditation, and compliance with duty hour limits. The committees oversee the educational infrastructure and opportunities for innovation across the spectrum of clinical education.
Membership on these committees includes Resident/Fellow representatives (elected by their peers), Residency and Fellowship Program Directors, the BWH and MGH Chief Medical Officers (CMOs), GME, and other senior hospital and education leaders. The Partners Education Committee has representation from each of the Partners teaching institutions, and is co-chaired by the chairs of the BWH and MGH education committees.
