Authored by experts from across the US, the toolkit is intended to enhance the success and development of struggling learners across a number of domains, providing guidance on coaching professionalism, communication, clinical reasoning, and organization and efficiency.

The reporting period for the ACGME’s annual surveys will open February 12, 2024, and run for eight weeks, ending April 7, 2024. The ACGME anticipates that Sponsoring Institutions and programs will receive survey reports in early May.
The ACGME will continue to notify and remind Sponsoring Institutions and program leaders about the survey throughout the administration period. As in previous years, program leadership is charged with alerting survey takers about their participation using the existing mechanisms available within the Accreditation Data System (ADS). Program administrators should review and, if necessary, update their Resident/Fellow and Faculty Rosters in ADS before the surveys open to ensure accurate scheduling of survey participants.
Email questions to ADS@acgme.org.
