RESIDENCY REVIEW COMMITTEE FOR UROLOGY 515 N State, Ste 2000, Chicago, IL 60610 • (312) 755-5495 • www.acgme.org PROGRAM INFORMATION FORM FOR NEW APPLICATIONS ONLY GENERAL INSTRUCTIONS Before beginning, please review the Program Requirements for Residency Education in Urology. Please read the instructions carefully before completing the forms. Only these forms may be used for supplying information and surgical statistics. APPLICATION FOR A NEW PROGRAM: This form is for use by programs making initial application. All sections of the form applicable to the program must be completed to be accepted for review. The information provided should describe the proposed program. For items that do not apply, indicate NA 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. Once the forms are complete, number the pages sequentially in the upper right hand corner, starting with Part 1, Section 1. Send four complete copies to the Executive Director of the RRC for Urology at the given address above. 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. For questions regarding the site visit, contact the writer of the letter announcing the site visit. For questions regarding the completion of the form (content), contact the Accreditation Administrator (Phone: 312-755-5495). For word processing questions/problems, contact the ACGME Help Desk (Phone: 312-755-7464) For Web Accreditation Data System questions email WebADS@acgme.org. SPECIFIC INSTRUCTIONS For Part 1, Section 4, list those faculty who currently participate directly and regularly in the education of the urology residents. Include members of other departments if applicable. Indicate whether "Chief", "Attending", etc. in the position field If a "Consultant" in a related field, note the field, e.g., "Radiology" "Pathology." Programs seeking continued accreditation must use the Accreditation Data System (ADS) to enter these data. The entered information will automatically appear in Part 1, Section 4 of the PIF. REVIEW OF AN ACCREDITED PROGRAM OR RE-ACCREDITATION OF A PROGRAM: If the program information form is being completed for a currently accredited program this is not the correct form. Use the Continued Accreditation PIF in conjunction with the Web Accreditation Data System (Web ADS). Follow the provided instructions to create the correct PIF. Go to the Web Accreditation Data System (Web ADS) found on the ACGME home page (www.acgme.org), using your previously assigned username and password, update your program and resident data, retrieve Part 1 of the PIF under the Site Visit Information section, complete the shaded items (as appropriate), print all sections of Part 1 of the PIF and sign the form. If you find items displayed incorrectly change your data using ADS update sections; in some instances you may need to contact your DIO for the entry of updated information. Next proceed to the section under the RRC for Urology to retrieve Part 2 of the PIF in either Word or WordPerfect. Complete Part 2 of the PIF using your preferred word processor (only after Part 1 has been completed). Combine Part 1 and Part 2, number the pages consecutively on the upper right corner, beginning with Part 1 Section 1 and complete the Table of Contents (found with the Part 2 instructions). Send one copy of the entire packet to the site visitor identified in your letter notifying the program of the visit ten working days prior to your site visit.

  22. 22. SECTION 15. INSTRUCTIONS FOR COMPLETION OF UROLOGY SURGICAL OPERATIVE LOG FORMS A. Resident and Program Director Responsibilities: At the conclusion of urology residency program, each chief resident must provide the Program Director with the SIGNED surgical log documenting his/her 36 or 48 months of clinical urology operative experience. It is the resident's responsibility to keep copies of dictated operating room reports on all cases in which he/she is listed as the responsible surgeon. The operative log submitted to the RRC must be countersigned by the Program Director who will attest to the accuracy of the data submitted. Logs without BOTH the resident and Program Director signatures will be returned. B. Frequently asked questions: 1. Can a resident obtain credit as surgeon for more than one operation when performing a surgical procedure? In most cases the answer is no. For example, the resident who performs a radical nephrectomy cannot take credit for a nephrectomy, adrenalectomy, and retroperitoneal lymphadenectomy. However, there are some multi-component operations that incorporate individual procedures that are commonly performed as individual operations, i.e. pelvic lymphadenectomy. In certain cases credit for more than one procedure can be obtained. Approved Examples of Exceptions: Operations Report Radical Retropubic Prostatectomy 1 Radical prostatectomy and 1 Pelvic lymphadenectomy Radical Cystectomy with urinary continent diversion or 1 Radical cystectomy and reconstruction 1 Pelvic lymphadenectomy and either: a.) conduit, ileal or colonic; b.) any continent cutaneous diversion c.) orthotopic neobladder, any type Urinary Diversion with Transureteroureterostomy 1 Transureteroureterostomy and 1 Ureteroneocystostomy with bladder flap 2. Can two residents obtain credit as surgeon during one operation? Yes, in certain circumstances. When one resident is performing a radical prostatectomy, he can permit another resident to make the incision and perform the pelvic lymphadenectomy before performing the radical prostatectomy. In this case, one resident is the assistant on the lymphadenectomy and the surgeon on the prostatectomy, and the other resident is the surgeon on the lymphadenectomy and the assistant on the prostatectomy. In cases where a bilateral operation is performed, two residents can obtain credit for unilateral procedures, e.g. bilateral orchiopexy, adrenalectomy, simple nephrectomy, ureteral re-implantation. 3. What is the definition of surgeon and assistant? The resident who performs 50% or more of a case is considered the surgeon. Assistant refers only to first assistant. residency-review-committee-for-urology4874.doc
