Dr. Grace Hundley, assistant professor of internal medicine and pediatrics at the University of South Alabama College of Medicine, was recently appointed as the USA internal medicine-pediatrics residency program director. The graduate medical education committee voted unanimously on her behalf, and she began her new role on July 1, 2014.
The Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education (ACGME) defines the program director as the physician designated with authority and accountability for the operation of the residency program.
The program director wears many hats -- filling the role of principal, counselor, registrar, financial officer, time keeper, and recruiter.
“I am grateful for the support from the medicine and pediatrics chairs for the medicine-pediatrics program, as well as the program coordinators and support staff in helping me transition to this new role,” Dr. Hundley said. “I look forward to finding innovative ways to help the residents reach their full potential.”
As the program director, Dr. Hundley’s goals are focused on creating the best possible learning and working environment for the residents while upholding the program requirements. “I want to keep the residents challenged and progressing to be the best physicians they can be,” she said.
