Every 10 years, Review Committees are required to review their specialty Program Requirements to determine necessary revisions. The ACGME Board of Directors has approved a new process for all such major revisions going forward.
The process convened specialty-specific writing groups, who, along with members of the specialty community and leaders from other specialties and related fields, rigorously and creatively considered what the specialty will look like in the future (recognizing that the future is marked with significant uncertainty). Out of this process, writing groups will draft and propose revisions to the Program Requirements that will prepare the learners for current practice and generations to come.
The following writing group request feedback. The scenario-based planning summary of themes and insights is posted for review and comment here. Submit comments using the electronic review and comment form.
Deadline: January 3, 2024
