TAGME Spotlight

Maggie Petre, C-TAGME, is the Manager of Medical Education at AdvocateAurora Health – Lutheran General Hospital.  She has a bachelor’s in science management from the University of Phoenix.

Maggie is currently serving on TAGME’s Board of Directors in the capacity of Chair of the Assessment Committee.  For nearly 32 years, she found deep purpose in being part of medical education and takes great satisfaction in seeing medical students progress into residency, fellowship, and independent practice as a physician.

Her medical education experience includes managing an internal medicine residency program, a psychiatry residency program, and GME level oversight. But her passion in seeing people grow and develop does not stop there. She started the journey of professional development when she first got involved with TAGME in 2005 and became one of the first two training administrators to receive national certification in the State of Illinois in the specialty of psychiatry. Since, she has had the privilege to serve TAGME in various roles that contributed to her own development. Maggie has been a fervent advocate for administrators of graduate medical education, motivating them to take charge of their own learning and development by participating in educational activities that support that growth, getting involved in scholarly activities that encourage critical thinking, and pursuing certification.

 

Some Objectives of TAGME:

  • Promote the use of effective measurement tools to assess the competency of GME training administrators
  • Share knowledge, encourage educational opportunities, and personal and professional growth through continued advancements in the profession
  • Promote ethical principles and professional behavior in support of GME training programs for physicians-in-training
  • Uphold and support national educational standards for GME administration
  • Promote continuing development by providing a mechanism of recertification to individuals who continue to demonstrate their qualifications beyond the initial certification
