Tip of the week: Keep your program letters of agreements up to date

Residency Program Insider, March 11, 2008

The ACGME requires every residency program to have a program letter of agreement (PLA) with its participating institution or the entities involved in resident education. The institution and its programs must review and renew or terminate PLAs at least every five years. You also need to modify your PLA anytime there is a major change to your program. Although institutions must have up-to-date forms available during an institutional review, it is often up to the program directors and coordinators to keep the PLA for their program current. With so many programs to keep track of, it is helpful to create a database that identifies important information and dates in the agreements.
