The mission of New York Hospital Queens is to be the premier healthcare institution serving the greater community of Queens by providing excellence in clinical care, patient safety, education, clinical research, and community service. The hospital’s values include caring and compassion, commitment, candor, courage, competence and continuous learning.
In keeping with the hospital's mission and values regarding education and research, the hospital's Board of Trustees is committed to providing all necessary educational, financial and human resources required to meet or exceed all ACGME, ADA, and CPME institutional and residency program requirements.
Further, the institution commits itself to providing an educational environment that enhances the ethical, professional and personal development of its graduate staff.
The Office of Graduate Medical Education coordinates all institutional medical education activities. The Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education (ACGME), the accrediting body for all graduate medical education programs, mandates institutional responsibility and required documentation for all GME programs. The ACGME reviews all institutions with two or more residency programs through the institutional review document and periodic site visits (approximately every 3 years).
There must be a Designated Institutional Official (DIO) who has the authority and responsibility for the oversight and administration of the Sponsoring Institution’s ACGME accredited programs and who is responsible for assuring compliance with ACGME institutional requirements.
Jaclyn Competello, MBA is the Administrative Director for Graduate Medical Education at New York Hospital Queens. She brings a wealth of GME experience and joined the New York Hospital Queens team in April 2011. Jaclyn graduated from SUNY Cortland with a Bachelors of Arts in History and received her Masters in Business Administration with a concentration in Healthcare Management from Dowling University. To contact Ms. Jaclyn Competello call (718) 670-1507.
Institutions must have a centralized office responsible for ensuring compliance with all institutional requirements established by the ACGME to support these residency programs. The institution is responsible for 5 core residency training programs, 6 fellowship training programs, a CPME and 3 ADA residency training programs.
The Office of Graduate Medical Education relies on its relationship with all departments within the institution. It exists in part to meet the ACGME requirements for centralization and oversight and as an institutional graduate medical education resource. The Office also provides assistance and counseling to all members of the graduate staff whenever needed. Its major functions include accreditation:
