Common Program Requirements

The 45-day Review and Comment period for proposed revisions to Section VI of the Common Program Requirements has ended.
The ACGME thanks the GME community and the public for their feedback and participation in this critical phase of the requirements revision process. The Task Force will reconvene shortly, and all comments submitted following the required process during the 45-day public comment period will be considered when preparing the final proposed requirements for review by the ACGME Board of Directors in February 2017. If approved, the new/revised requirements (Section VI only) will be shared with the graduate medical education community, with an effective date targeted for the 2017-2018 academic year.
