Congratulations to Debbie Darr, Administrative Director of Medical Education for the Graduate Medical Education programs at Northeast Regional Medical Center in Kirksville, Missouri. Debbie has just earned her TAGME certification!
TAGME (Training Administrators of Graduate Medical Education) is the certification board for coordinators and administrators in graduate medical education. Candidates must have at least three continuous years in the same ACGME or AOA accredited graduate medical education clinical specialty. They must have accumulated at least ten hours of Educational Credits through attendance at National, Regional, State, or Institutional meetings within the past three years and demonstrate a minimum of two personal professional development experiences in that time. The application process has two steps, the Work Effort Assessment Tool, completed by the applicant within a two-month deadline, and the Monitored Assessment Tool, a more than three-hour proctored assessment. A score of 80% or greater is required on both assessments to achieve certification.
Still OPTI is thrilled to congratulate Debbie on her years of faithful service to graduate medical education and this prestigious distinction in her field. She has been an active participant in the Still OPTI OGME and Faculty Enrichment committees since we began. We know we join with many resident graduates over the years, as well as the faculty of NRMC, in congratulating Debbie and expressing our gratitude for her cheerful and untiring efforts through the years.
