In 2012, the ACGME launched its Clinical Learning Environment Review (CLER) program as part of the Next Accreditation System to encourage clinical sites to reshape how they engage residents. Its most prominent objective is to provide teaching hospitals, medical centers, and other clinical settings with feedback on six focus areas: care transitions, duty hour oversight and fatigue management and mitigation, healthcare quality, patient safety, professionalism, and supervision. Feedback provided following a site visit is intended to improve how clinical sites engage residents and fellows in learning to provide safe and high quality patient care. The first set of visits has already been completed, and the second set is underway.
