ACGME board approves final duty hour and supervision standards for resident education
Date:9/29/2010

CHICAGO, September 28, 2010 -- The Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education (ACGME) Board of Directors has approved a set of requirements that are a comprehensive approach to patient care, quality improvement, supervision, professionalism, transitions in care, and resident well-being. Included are graduated standards for duty hours for the nation's 111,000 residents training in ACGME accredited teaching institutions. The new standards will go into effect in July 2011.

The requirements for doctors-in-training are a comprehensive package of interrelated standards designed to better match residents' levels of experience and emerging competencies, advancing both graduate medical education and safe quality patient care in the nation's teaching hospitals.

A 16-member ACGME task force represented leading specialists in medical education, patient safety and clinical care including 12 physicians with extensive experience in graduate medical education programs, three residents and a public representative with extensive experience in evaluating health care related issues developed proposed standards for the ACGME Board. The group's co-chairs were E. Stephen Amis, MD, chair of the Council of Review Committees, a group made up of the chairs of the Residency Review Committees that review residency programs in the various specialties, and university chair of the Department of Radiology at Albert Einstein College of Medicine and Montefiore Medical Center in New York, and Susan H. Day, MD, outgoing chair of the ACGME Board of Directors and chair of the Department of Ophthalmology at California Pacific Medical Center, San Francisco.

"These new standards are a cohesive whole," noted Thomas Nasca, MD, MACP, chief executive officer of ACGME and vice chair of the ACGME task force that developed the standards. "Implementing them will require small change in some programs and large changes in others, all with the goals of ensuring patient safety
