The CRCC includes the current chairs of all ACGME Review and Recognition Committees, the two Resident Directors (who sit on the ACGME Board of Directors), and one Public Director who is appointed by the ACGME Board.

This Council meets biannually and recommends to the ACGME administration and the ACGME Board approaches to improve educational outcomes within and across clinical specialties, policies and procedures that guide accreditation, and other matters as charged by the ACGME administration or the ACGME Board.

The group meets twice a year, with interim phone calls and online meetings if necessary.
