The ACGME's Web site lists the common citations programs receive after a site visit. To search their site for common citations, do the following:

  • Click on the RC link on the left side of the home page
  • Select your RC
  • Select the link referring to frequent citations

If your RC does not have a list of common citations posted, contact the RC executive director via e-mail and request the information.

During your site visit, be ready to address the citations on your RC's list. Because your RC frequently cites these issues, you can assume that they are areas of emphasis for your RC and challenges for programs like yours around the country.

Additionally, ask your GME office or DIO what citations other programs at your institution commonly receive.

More information about preparing for an ACGME site visit can be found in Insider's Guide to ACGME Survey Prep, by Kathryn Andolsek, MD, MPH, and Shepard Cohen available here.
