Greg Care provides resident physicians and fellows with guidance on residency program and NRMP best practices and pitfalls at Student Doctor Network webinar.

Partner Greg Care spoke to resident physicians and fellows during a webinar entitled, “Facing Problems in Your Residency Program? Q&A With a Residency Law Attorney,” hosted by the Student Doctor Network (SDN) on August 9. SDN is a nonprofit helping to build a diverse doctor workforce by providing a wide range of free resources to help students in their educational journeys.

Throughout the 60-minute-long webinar, Greg provided guidance on a wide range of topics, including how residents/fellows should deal with remediation and the process that precedes serious discipline and how to deal with serious discipline once it is imposed. He also advised students about requesting waivers and/or opposing waiver requests made to the National Resident Matching Program (NRMP), the role of the Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education (ACGME) and complaints to the ACGME, and licensing disciplinary issues.

The protection of employees’ and students’ rights is a priority for Greg. For years, he has dedicated a substantial part of his practice to representing resident physicians and fellows facing discipline during their training, problem-solving on concerns about compliance with ACGME requirements, and advocating for those accused of running afoul of NRMP rules. Greg knows graduate medical education and academic medicine, as well as the difficulties that can arise and their solutions. He uses that understanding to ensure that his clients’ careers continue to grow.
