The ACGME’s Clinical Learning Environment Review (CLER) program aims to provide feedback to teaching hospitals, medical centers, health systems and other clinical settings in order for them to improve several aspects of the clinical learning environment, including patient safety. The ACGME’s recent report on CLER findings provides the following recommendations to improve experiential patient safety training for residents and fellows:
•    Allow residents and fellows to report into the clinical learning environment’s patient safety event-reporting systems
•    Provide residents and fellows with appropriate orientation and keep them informed of site-specific processes
•    Educate trainees on the value of reporting close calls to help them identify possible precursors to harm events
•    Provide feedback when events are reported to encourage trainees to continue reporting
•    Train faculty members to be good role models of risk identification, harm reduction, and creators of a culture of safety
