    ACGME accreditation

    Advertisements



    Hi all,
    I am currently in my 3rd year at AUC and will be starting my 4th very soon. I have a question about ACGME accreditation for clinical rotations as it has just been brought to my attention that accreditation is by rotation and not site. I do not really know how I have been in the dark about it. But, I was under the impression that all AUC sites are ACGME accredited and, by this alone, all rotations are ACGME accredited as well. But, as I said, I recently found out otherwise. I am scheduled to do 4 of my elective rotations at NUMC, 1 of which is technically accredited according to the ACGME website. However, out of the other 3, 2 are a subspecialty of IM and 1 is a subspecialty of Peds. NUMC is accredited in its IM and Peds core rotations, so, I did not know if this would still count as the electives being accredited as well. I also came to find out that my Neuro rotation that is scheduled at an AUC site is not accredited according to the ACGME website, so, I was going to look into changing that if possible.
    Anyway, I was just wondering if any of you out there could shed some light on his/her knowledge of the subject. Of course, I will be in contact with the school as well. I was just wondering who has had some experience with this subject and what you may have learned.
    I do know that for a lot of the states it only matters if core rotations are ACGME accredited. But, some states do require ALL rotations to be, and I do not want to limit myself, of course.
    I thought I was playing it safe by choosing to go to AUC sites, as I did not want this scenario to be an issue.
    Any help would be greatly appreciated!

    (how many times was the word accredited used in this post--sorry!)

    I have come to realize that this is a very overdone thread. I think I just posted in a moment of panic. After having done my own research (through e-mails, internet, and phone calls)...I got the answer I was seeking.
    Sorry for the extremely annoying exhaust of this topic.
