The Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education recently lauded the Clinical Research Division's Lisa Anderson, administrator of the Fred Hutch/University of Washington adult Hematology-Oncology Training Program, for her work.

Anderson and four other recipients received a GME Program Coordinator Excellence Award at the ACGME's recent annual meeting in Orlando, Fla. The award honors and recognizes the very crucial role that program coordinators play in the success of residency and fellowship programs. The organization oversees approximately 8,400 accredited residency and fellowship programs in 121 specialty and subspecialty areas of medicine. Collectively, the programs are responsible for the education of more than 105,000 residents and fellows. This year, nearly 3,000 physicians and GME administrators attended the ACGME meeting.

"We are very excited for Lisa," said Agnes O'Connor, Clinical Research administrator. "She has worked so enthusiastically and creatively to make the medical training program so successful."

Dr. Michael Linenberger, who directs the fellowship program, said the award was well deserved. "It is a fitting tribute to Lisa's personal accomplishments, her 10 years of contributions to our training program, and her tireless dedication and support of our fellows, faculty, program directors and the University of Washington GME community," he said.
