ACGME Call for Comments on the Common Program Requirements Sections I-V, Phase 2

The ACGME Board of Directors initiated this second and final phase of the Common Program Requirements Sections I-V review. To address inherent differences in specialty and subspecialty training, the Phase 2 Task Force developed two sets of Common Program Requirements - one specific to residency programs, and a separate set for fellowships. The fellowship version applies to all subspecialty programs, regardless of program length, and will replace the separate One-Year Common Program Requirements.
