New Common Program Requirements

  • Effective July 1, 2011; not just changes to duty hours

  • Introduction: focus of graduate medical education on transitioning a medical student to an independent practitioner through graded and progressive responsibility in medical education.

  • Professionalism, personal responsibility, and patient safety are discussed in detail

  • Transitions of care must be minimized and structured.

  • Residents and clinical fellows must work as members of effective interprofessional teams.

Patient Safety vs. Clinical Experience

Supervision vs. Autonomy

New Requirements: Fatigue

  • Fatigue education, which has been required for trainees, will be required for all teaching faculty.

  • Fatigue mitigation processes must be adopted.

    • i.e. strategic napping, back-up call schedules, etc.

    • Adequate sleep facilities and safe transportation options for those who are too fatigued to drive home (i.e. taxi vouchers, nap rooms, etc.) must be provided.

New Requirements: Supervision

  • Supervision is discussed in detail and definitions of direct and indirect supervision as well as oversight are provided.

  • Identifiable faculty and trainees may supervise trainees

    • Emphasis on progressive responsibility based on specific national standards-based criteria.

    • Interns (PGY1 residents) are required to have direct or indirect supervision at all times and day after “oversight” is no longer permitted.

New requirements: Duty Hours

  • Duty hours must be limited to 80 hours per week over a four-week period, including all moonlighting (internal and external).

  • All trainees must have one day off in seven over a four-week period; at-home call cannot be assigned on the free day.

New requirements: Duty Hours

  • Maximum duty period length:

    • PGY1: must not exceed 16 hours in duration

    • PGY2 and above: may be scheduled a maximum of 24 hours of continuous duty in the hospital plus four hours for transition (with naps encouraged)

  • Minimum time off between scheduled duty periods:

    • PGY1: should have 10 hours, must have eight

    • PGY2 and above: should have 10 hours, must have eight, but this may be shortened in selected clinical circumstances.

New requirements: Duty Hours

  • Night float may occur no more than six consecutive nights.

  • In-house call may not occur more frequently than every third night when averaged over a four-week period.

  • At-home call must not preclude rest and as with the previous requirements counts toward the maximum 80 hour per week maximum, but not in the shift break.

  • PGY1 residents may not moonlight.

ACGME Resident/Fellow Survey 2009-10 Institutional Responses

ACGME Resident/Fellow Survey 2009-10 Institutional Responses

ACGME Resident/Fellow Survey 2011

  • Core specialty programs (regardless of size) and subspecialty programs (with 4 or more fellows) surveyed between January and June.

  • 13 new survey questions, including:

    • Q14. Thinking about the faculty and staff in your program overall, how interested are they in your residency education?

    • Q17. How satisfied are you that your program treats your evaluations of faculty members confidentially?

    • Q20. How satisfied are you with the way your program uses the evaluations that residents/fellows provide to improve the program?

ACGME Resident/Fellow Survey 2011

  • Q34. Which of the following best summarizes your opinion of your residency program?

    - The best possible experience – if I had to select residency programs again, I’d pick this one

    - A good experience – if I had to select residency programs again, I would probably choose this one.

    - A neutral experience – if I had to select residency programs again, I might or might not choose this one.

    - A negative experience – if I had to select residency program again, I would probably not choose this one.

    - A very negative experience – if I had to select residency programs again, I would definitely not pick this one.

What is meant by “non-physician service obligations”?

“Duties which in most institutions are performed by technologists, aides, transporters, nurses, or other categories of health care workers. Examples include transport of patients from the wards or units for procedures elsewhere in the hospital, routine blood drawing for laboratory tests, routine monitoring of patients when off the ward and awaiting or undergoing procedures, etc.”

ACGME Resident/Fellow Survey 2011 Schedule

  • Jan/Feb - Surgical Subspecialties (Dermatology, Neurology, OBGYN, Radiology)

  • Feb/March - Neuro Surg, Nuc Med, Pathology, Pediatrics/Subspecialties, Psych, Rad Onc

  • March/April - Anesthesiology, Family Med, Ophthalmology, Emergency Med

  • April/May - Internal Med/Subspecialties, Surgery

Medical Education and the New Public Interest

1910: train future physicians to make care more scientific to reduce the burden of disease

2011: train future physicians to continually improve the delivery of care to realize its fullest potential benefit to the health and well-being of the population
