McGaw Housestaff Association

The McGaw Housestaff Association is a group of housestaff representing each educational program within McGaw for the purpose of communicating with the administration. Issues are addressed at forum meetings (held six to eight times per year).  McGaw Housestaff Association leadership then brings appropriate issues to the Graduate Medical Education Committee, of which they are members.

HSA representatives for each McGaw educational program are delegated, but any resident or fellow may attend meetings and/or contact McGaw Housestaff Association leadership to bring forth ideas or concerns.
