Regional Directors Network (RDN)
Create a link between NCOPE and local residency programs.
Aid in defining expectations for the residency director and residency site.
Allow for a feedback mechanism for directors.
In 2005, the Regional Director’s Network (RDN) was created. RDN members are ABC-certified practitioners that have extensive experience running an accredited NCOPE residency program. The RDNs have also been engaged with the implementation of competency-based training and assessment, introduced in 2012.
