GSM supports resident travel to approved regional or national conferences when the resident is presenting an accepted poster, abstract or oral presentation, or to receive an award. Amount - $2,250 per such meeting.
International travel for resident and fellow presentations will no longer be supported by GME funds. Accordingly, residents and fellows seeking GME funding for travel should not submit abstracts to meetings outside the contiguous 48 states. Abstract submissions for travel to Canada, Hawaii, Alaska, and U.S. territories must be original research and have the prior approval of the Department Chair and the Assistant Dean of GME in consultation with the Dean. Departments may elect to support international travel for residents and fellows through non-GME funding sources
|Payment for Publications||
GME funds can be used to pay for resident and fellow publication costs up to $1500 per accepted manuscript. To qualify, publications must meet the following criteria: (1) resident or fellow must be first or second author on the paper, (2) original research only (3) the journal must be PubMed cited and peer reviewed, and (4) the Impact Factor of the journal must exceed 1.5. Journal submission or membership fees will not be supported by GME funds. Residents should first check the impact factor of the journal of interest before submitting the manuscript.

**The amount of time a resident can be away from residency duties and still meet Board and or graduation requirements varies among the specialties. Each program will provide its residents with written program-specific policies on leave allowances and the effect of leaves of absence, for any reason, on satisfying the criteria for completion of that program.
Simulation is the imitation of real-life experience including the use of task and virtual reality trainers, as well as standardized patients to refine technical and clinical skills of healthcare professionals. At the UT Center for Advanced Medical Simulation, the goal is continual improvement in quality of patient care and safety through education, practice, and assessment. Simulation can replicate almost any diagnostic or therapeutic situation, from simple IV insertions using low-fidelity task technology to complicated surgeries using high-fidelity, computerized manikins or virtual reality modules.
