Teri Hill, C-TAGME, assumed the role of President, National Board for Certification, Training Administrators of Graduate Medical Education (TAGME). 

On August 5, 2014, Theresa (Teri) M. Hill, C-TAGME, assumed the role of President, National Board for Certification, Training Administrators of Graduate Medical Education (TAGME). Through certification TAGME establishes national educational standards, acknowledges management expertise and recognizes the competences of administrators of training programs and sponsoring institutions. Currently, this organization offers certification to 28 specialties and subspecialties, and two GME professionals groups (allopathic and osteopathic). In 2005, Teri started as a member of the TAGME Orthopaedic Surgery Taskforce that developed certification tools for coordinators of Orthopaedic Surgery Programs and became one of the first orthopaedic surgery program coordinators to become TAGME certified. In September 2009, while working in the Graduate Medical Education (GME) Office, she was asked to chair the ACGME Professionals in Central GME Offices taskforce. She led a team of 11 coordinators and administrators across the nation in developing the tools for this group. In 2012, she became TAGME certified with special qualifications in ACGME Professionals in Central GME Offices. She continued in her role as ACGME GME Professionals Specialty Review Board Chair (formerly a task force) until she was nominated and elected as Vice President of TAGME in August 2013. As more specialties and subspecialties seek TAGME certification and the ACGME expands to international programs, she will lead TAGME as the organization begins to explore certification changes and the possibilities of certification for non-ACGME accredited programs such as Dental and Podiatry.
