GME should not be used as a system of reward or punishment. GME is to create an educated, knowlegeable, skillful, certified physician who provides medical care of unsurpassed quality, not to reward a "team player" for "good behavior". ALL physicians should have the benefit of GME before entering practice irregardless of the characterization of their "professional relationships". There are other avenues to deal with "unprofessional" behavior.
I'm not talking about brown nosing. In the case I mentioned above, the person's day to day interactions were so bad about 3 separate people independently of each other complained about it. GME isn't an entitlement. You have to earn it just like anything else.
