Ask the expert: Who should we interview during an internal review?

Interview the following people during an internal review:

  • Program director
  • Key faculty members
  • At least one peer-selected resident from each training level
  • Others (when appropriate)

You may also elect to interview the residency program coordinator and members of relevant program leadership committees. Over the past few years, the ACGME has issued numerous citations to institutions that failed to interview an adequate number of faculty members as part of the internal review process.

 

Note: The internal reviews must be in process and documented in the GMEC minutes at the approximate midpoint of the accreditation cycle.

 

More information about helpful system changes can be found in Insider's Guide to ACGME Site Visit, Second Edition, by Kathryn Andolsek, MD, MPH, and Shepard Cohen, available here.
