Program directors and coordinators should know the following information about the recently revised resident survey:

 

·        The survey is not administered in conjunction with a site visit, although information from the survey may be used at the time of a program's site visit.

·        The ACGME will notify programs directly when their participation in the survey is required, and will include detailed information for accessing the survey and a deadline for completion. It is the program's responsibility to ensure residents and fellows complete the survey.

·        Residents will have 4 weeks to complete the survey.

·        The ACGME requires a 70% response rate.

·        Summary data from the survey will be available to program directors, the review committee (RC), and the surveyor for the program's next site visit if at least 70% of residents complete the survey.

·        Programs are not required to send the survey report to site visitors or the RC.
