For More Detail, Background, Perspectives, and News Visit the ACGME Common Program Requirements Website >>


The ACGME Common Program Requirements are in place to ensure that ACGME-accredited specialty and subspecialty programs follow a basic set of standards (requirements) in training and preparing resident and fellow physicians.

These requirements set the context within clinical learning environments for development of the skills, knowledge, and attitudes necessary to take personal responsibility for the individual care of patients. In addition, they facilitate an environment where residents and fellows can interact with patients under the guidance and supervision of qualified faculty members who give value, context, and meaning to those interactions.
