Congratulations to Dr. Brian Harrell, CAQSM, BRGMC FM Resident Program faculty,  who graduated from a year-long fellowship with the National Institute for Program Director Development (NIPDD).  This professional development program is operated by the Association of Family Medicine Residency Directors (AFMRD) and is designed to help program directors learn the "ins and outs" of their profession.  It is geared toward newer PD's, or up-and-coming PD's, associate PD's, etc.  This program places an emphasis on how the overall medical education scheme works from the federal, state, and local levels, as well as how the program director role fits within the grand scheme of the ACGME.  As part of the NIPDD program, Dr. Harrell completed three projects- Procedure Tracking in a Primary Care Residency Program: A True Cultural Shift, a year-end annual report of the BRG Family Medicine Residency Program, and a comprehensive financial report on the BRG Family Medicine Residency Program.
