    • THE RESIDENCY REVIEW COMMITTEE FOR NUCLEAR MEDICINE 515 N State, Ste 2000, Chicago, IL 60654 • (312) 755-5000 • www.acgme.org FOR NEW APPLICATIONS ONLY GENERAL INSTRUCTIONS APPLICATIONS FOR A NEW PROGRAM: This Program Information Form (PIF) is for programs applying for INITIAL ACCREDITATION ONLY (for Continued Accreditation or re-accreditation, use the CONTINUED ACCREDITATION PIF in conjunction with the Web Accreditation Data System). All sections of the form applicable to the program must be completed in order to be accepted for review. The information provided should describe the proposed program. For items that do not apply indicate N/A in the space provided. Where patient numbers are requested, estimate what you expect will occur. If any requested information is not available, an explanation should be given and it should be so indicated in the appropriate place on the form. Once the forms are complete, number the pages sequentially in the bottom center. Send four complete copies to the executive director of the Residency Review Committee for Nuclear Medicine at the address above. They must be identical and final. Draft copies are not acceptable. The forms should be submitted bound by either sturdy rubber bands or binder clips. Do not place the forms in covers such as two or three ring binders, spiral bound notebooks, or any other form of binding. The program director is responsible for the accuracy of the information supplied in this form and must sign it. It must also be signed by the designated institutional official of the sponsoring institution. Review the Program Requirements for Residency Education in Nuclear Medicine. The Program Requirements and the Institutional Requirements may be downloaded from the ACGME website (www.acgme.org): For questions regarding: -the completion of the form (content), contact the Accreditation Administrator. -the Accreditation Data System, email WebADS@acgme.org. For a glossary of terms, use the following link – http://www.acgme.org/acWebsite/GME_info/gme_glossary.asp Note that the process takes approximately one year from the time the application is received until it is evaluated by the Residency Review Committee. A site visit will be scheduled during that year. Nuclear Medicine New Application PIF i
