RESIDENCY REVIEW COMMITTEE FOR DIAGNOSTIC RADIOLOGY

  1. 1. RESIDENCY REVIEW COMMITTEE FOR DIAGNOSTIC RADIOLOGY 515 N State, Ste 2000, Chicago, IL 60654 • www.acgme.org SUBSPECIALTY PROGRAMS IN MUSCULOSKELETAL RADIOLOGY PROGRAM INFORMATION FORM FOR NEW APPLICATIONS GENERAL INSTRUCTIONS This form is for use by programs making Initial Application Only (for re-accreditation, use the Continued Accreditation PIF and the 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. 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. Mail the completed application to the Residency Review Committee at the above address. The Program Requirements, the Institutional Requirements, and Program Information Form (PIF) may be downloaded from the ACGME Website (www.acgme.org) and should be reviewed carefully. For questions regarding the completion of the form (content), contact the Accreditation Administrator (Phone: 312-755-5042) For Accreditation Data System questions, contact or email WebADS@acgme.org. For a glossary of terms, use the following link – http://www.acgme.org/acWebsite/GME_info/gme_glossary.asp Program Letters of Agreement (PLA): Attach at the end of the PIF a letter of agreement (PLA) for each participating site providing an assignment. 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 DIO of the sponsoring institution. SPECIFIC INSTRUCTIONS Sponsoring Institutions: Please review carefully the following statement from the Program Requirements for the Subspecialties of Diagnostic Radiology: “Residency education programs in the subspecialties of diagnostic radiology maybe accredited only in institutions that either sponsor a residency education program in diagnostic radiology accredited by the ACGME or are integrated by formal agreement into such programs. Close cooperation between the subspecialty and residency program directors is required.” For purposes of completing the application, this means that: a) If the program is conducted in the institution in which there is an ACGME-accredited diagnostic radiology residency program, the signature of the Director of the core Diagnostic Radiology program will suffice to document sponsorship by the core program. b) If the program is conducted in an institution other than that of the core residency program, a formal signed integration agreement between the Diagnostic Radiology program and the Musculoskeletal Radiology program must also be provided. residency-review-committee-for-diagnostic-radiology1127.doc i
  2. 2. Participating Sites: For accredited programs the entry on the PROGRAM TITLE line should correspond to the title of the program in the current Graduate Medical Education Directory. If a change in title is being requested, this should be included in a cover letter accompanying the forms. For new applications the requested title should be the title of the core Diagnostic Radiology residency program. All program titles are subject to editing to conform to ACGME policies. All sites offering required rotations or experiences should be listed. One site should be designated as the primary clinical site and identified as Site #1”. If multiple sites are used, append letters of agreement which describe the trainees’ activities including the content of the experience, duration, supervision, and patient numbers. residency-review-committee-for-diagnostic-radiology1127.doc ii
