The ACGME released a statement regarding the Fifth Pathway Program last Wednesday. In the announcement, the organization said it has no plans to revise Institutional Requirement II.A.1.d-the regulation which states that those who completed the Fifth Pathway Program are eligible for positions in ACGME-accredited residency programs.

Earlier this year, the AMA announced they will no longer support Fifth Pathway Program classes after July, 1, 2009. After that decision, the ACGME stated it would reevaluate the future status of Fifth Pathway eligibility.

The Fifth Pathway allows students who completed four years at a foreign medical school to complete supervised clinical work at a U.S. medical school and become eligible for entry into a U.S. residency program.
