Some of the most common inconsistencies on the PIF are the following:

  • Number of residents in the program versus the number of names on the ACGME’s Accreditation Database System (ADS) list of residents
  • Number months listed that residents spend at each institution versus the number of months shown on the block diagram
  • Number of months residents are listed to be on a specific rotation versus number of months shown on the block diagram
  • Number of patients/residents in the clinic versus clinic volume
  • Errors in the list of faculty, faculty CVs, and faculty credentials


Keep an eye out for these data and information when completing the PIF; remember to double check.

This week’s question and answer are from Program Information Form Made Simple by Jeri L. Whitten, C-TAGME, published by HCPro, Inc.
