Program Coordinator Council

Program Coordinator Council (PCC) Mission Statement ​

The mission of the University of Colorado Denver School of Medicine Program Coordinator Council is to provide coordinators a platform to exchange, develop and implement ideas and to foster communication between Program Coordinators, Program Directors and the Office of Graduate Medical Education in order to ensure the success of residency and fellowship training programs. 

As a council, we are dedicated to:

Creating an atmosphere of camaraderie and support among Program Coordinators.
Developing and encouraging opportunities for professional growth.
Educating and collaborating with the campus community on the vital role of the Program Coordinator.​
Any GME coordinator that wishes to join the council is welcome to complete this form​ and send it to the Chair of the Council.

We also encourage you to download the Program Coordinator Manual Template, located at MedHub Home > GME Resources and Documents > Toolkits and Resources for Programs > Program Coordinator Training and Resources > GME Training Guides, this an optional resource created by the PCC to help coordinators define and document their varying and unique responsibilities within their department.

Program Coordinator Council Subcommittees

Learn more about our subcommittees below.  Contact the designated subcommittee chair if you're interested in getting involved!

This committee is the face of the PCC! The committee chair reaches out to new coordinators when they arrive to offer PC resources and assistance. Recently, this group created a Program Coordinator Manual Template that several of our peers use on campus. They are also responsible for the Mentor & Mentee Program offered to coordinators on campus.

This committee is the backbone of the PCC. Their major projects include the planning of the Annual Program Coordinator Retreat every summer in addition to the implementation of a new coordinator-focused poster presentation session. Count on this group to help boost your resume.

The PC Community & Wellness Committee is here to support the PC community in the following areas:

PC Wellness - we offer both physical and mental health resources through a monthly online newsletter & host an annual PC wellness retreat.

PC Community & Comradery – we host monthly virtual wellness hours to encourage conversation and games to de-stress & to form a stronger PC community; we host quarterly PC roundtable sessions to exchange ideas & ask questions to the broader PC community.

Neighbor/Community – we promote/organize community service events, such as foodbank volunteering and supporting local families in need.
