Each SAUSHEC member institution has a HS Council which is peer-appointed with a representative from key training programs at the member institution. The HS Councils meet at least quarterly and maintain minutes which are reviewed and approved by the GMEC working through the GMEC Residents' Issues Subcommittee. The purpose of the HS Councils is to support housestaff morale, to provide residents with an organized forum to discuss HS issues, as well as to provide a mechanism to raise issues and bring them to the GMEC. The HS Councils working with the Associate Dean of Graduate Medical Education (AD-GME) of each member institution ensure HS membership on appropriate member institution hospital committees. The HS Councils of each member institution ensure that one fellow and one resident are peer-selected to be voting members of the GMEC.
