    9. Definitions Accreditation: determining whether a residency or fellowship is in substantial compliance with established educational standards. Responsibility of the ACGME and its Residency Review Committees (RRCs) Certification: determining whether a individual physician has met the requirements of a particular specialty. Responsibility of the member boards of the American Board of Medical Specialties (ABMS). 800 million odnt have enough to eat Actually its now 1.1 billion and 312 million800 million odnt have enough to eat Actually its now 1.1 billion and 312 million

    11. What is the Review Process? Site Visit: 110 day notice. Should program wait until then? Completion of Program Information forms (PIF) RRC review consists of: Program (and Institutional) history PIF Site visit report Resident and fellow survey 800 million odnt have enough to eat Actually its now 1.1 billion and 312 million800 million odnt have enough to eat Actually its now 1.1 billion and 312 million

    12. Site Visitor Two types: Field representatives and Specialist Site Visitors.

    39. Accreditation Challenges

    41. Getting Through the Site Visit Day with a Smile on Your Face Preparing the Files, Forms, Policies, and People

    42. The PIF is Done, Now What? Preparation before the big day The day of the visit

    43. Site Visitor Letter from ACGME Make contact immediately Be very accommodating Site Visitor will make specific scheduling requests Who should attend Timeline for the day Additional information that should be provided Offer: Help with travel plans Parking at UCSF Detailed directions and location information Breakfast/coffee/lunch

    44. Schedule Date is not flexible All people requested by Site Visitor must be present Inform him/her immediately if someone is unavailable Clear, precise, organized email to Site Visitor Once its set dont changeespecially on the day of the visit Schedule one conference room for entire day

    45. Preparing the People Residents/fellows and participating faculty Distribute the PIF should be read several times prior Review: ACGME Resident Survey Policies Evaluation process ACGME competencies Goals and objectives Etc. Prepare everyone, but dont tell them what to say

    46. Preparing the Documentation Two types: Resident/Clinical Fellow personnel files Program documentation Organized No loose paper (binders or folders) Be able to find things quickly when requested Make sure all documentation matches what was reported in the PIF

    47. Resident/Clinical Fellow Files Personnel files one file per trainee Can organize by year, type of document, or both Transfers: include copies of correspondence between Program Directors Include: Appointment paperwork (each year) Evaluations of trainee Divided by competency and complete set Final evaluation for program graduates 360 evaluations 6-month evaluations by Program Director Other educational information, including: Procedure logs PowerPoint presentations In-service exam scores Conference attendance Rotation schedules Published articles and other scholarly activities Records of disciplinary actions Moonlighting records

    48. Program Documentation Binders and dividers Documentation of Internal Review (not full report) Program educational goals Competency-based goals and objectives (by rotation and PGY) Program Letters of Agreement (PLAs) Conference schedules and attendance Duty hour reports PIF Program policies, including: Supervision Duty hours Moonlighting Etc. Evaluations (templates) Of trainees for each rotation Semi-annual of trainee by Program Director Summative evaluations of trainee completing program Of faculty by trainees Of program by trainees Of program by faculty Rotation and call schedules Faculty CVs

    49. Day of Visit Conference room Private and quiet Make sure room is clean Sign on door Refreshments Computer and phone access if possible All binders and files should be in room, ready upon request Page/email reminders for all participants 1 week prior, day before, and/or morning of Site Visit Program Coordinator should participate Additional help for Coordinator to serve as a runner 3 copies of PIF Stick to schedule be on time Again, be as accommodating as possible

    50. Most Importantly Be organized and stay calm!
