The Office of Graduate Medical Education is available to help residents during your training. Our office is responsible for overseeing accreditation of the institution and assisting programs in maintaining their accreditation. We also assist residents and fellows in obtaining licenses, applying for USMLE exams, maintaining visa status and compliance with duty hours, as well as serving as a liaison to the House Staff Board of Directors and Graduate Medical Education Committee. The Office of Graduate Medical Education serves as a resource for residents and fellows who need assistance or information about their training, living in Springfield, or future plans. Please come and see us if you need assistance while you are training at SIU.
This manual was created to provide some introductions to residency/fellowship training at SIU School of Medicine and its Affiliated Hospitals. This information will prepare you as you begin the next step of your medical education.
