Carole Boudreaux, M.D., was appointed associate dean for graduate medical education (GME) and designated institutional official for GME at the University of South Alabama College of Medicine. She was previously assistant dean for graduate medical education, providing leadership for USA Health’s 12 residency and nine fellowship programs, which includes 274 positions for physicians in training.
“The education of students, residents and fellows is at the core of what we do as an academic health care system,” said John Marymont, M.D., vice president for medical affairs and dean of the USA College of Medicine. “The structures and processes through which residents and fellows are now trained evolves rapidly. To have someone dedicated and fully committed to that role ensures an optimal experience for those we educate.”
Boudreaux previously served as the assistant dean for graduate medical education from April 2011 to May 2013. During that time, she achieved the institution’s five-year cycle of accreditation and was commended for demonstrating substantial compliance with regulations.
USA Health maintains full accreditation as a sponsoring institution by the Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education (ACGME), with its most recent renewal of accreditation in January 2019. The GME program is tasked with developing the clinical competency, medical knowledge, and professional attributes of physicians, promoting the safe and effective care of patients and advancing the art of healing through quality improvement and medical research. Residents and fellows in the training programs are integrated into USA Health, the region's only academic health system.
“Her attention to detail and genuine enthusiasm for graduate medical education makes her an excellent fit for this new role,” said Mary Townsley, Ph.D., senior associate dean of the USA College of Medicine.
Boudreaux received a medical degree from Louisiana State University School of Medicine in Shreveport. She completed a residency in anatomic and clinical pathology at USA Health and has also served as the pathology residency program director at USA Health. She is certified by the American Board of Pathology with an added certification in cytopathology.
