Review and Comment

The ACGME invites comments from the community of interest regarding the proposed requirements listed below.

As part of the ongoing effort to encourage the participation of the graduate medical education community in the process of revising requirements, the ACGME may publish some or all of the comments it receives on the ACGME website. By submitting your comments, the ACGME will consider your consent granted. If you or your organization does not consent, please indicate such in your comments directly, or in the space provided on the Comment Form (below).

Specialty- and Subspecialty-Specific Program Requirements

For specialty/subspecialty requirements, Review Committees are not permitted to alter Common Program Requirement language, which appears in bold font. Therefore, comments are invited only on requirements not in bold font.

For focused revisions, only the section(s) of the requirements being revised will be open for review and comment.

Comments must be submitted electronically, using the form below, to the respective specialty mailbox indicated by the date indicated. Any responses that do not address the requested information, or which are submitted in a format other than indicated, may or may not be considered, at the discretion of the Review Committee.
