Once the data entry is complete, select Generate PIF to review and print the Common PIF (PDF). Pages will be numbered consecutively in the bottom center of each page. Once the Common PIF is complete, proceed to the appropriate Residency Review Committee webpage to retrieve the Specialty Specific PIF for CONTINUED ACCREDITATION. Once the forms are complete, enter page numbers for the Continued PIF in the bottom center for each page that consecutively follows the Common PIF numbering, combine the Common PIF and the Continued Accreditation PIF and complete the Table of Contents (found with the Specialty Specific PIF instructions). After completing the PIF/documents, make four copies. 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.
