For a better understanding of how the ACGME reviews your ADS (Accreditation Data System) during its annual review, see this JGME article: http://www.jgme.org/doi/10.4300/JGME-D-17-00320.1?code=gmed-site

Key Take-Aways:

  1. One explicit goal of the new system is for RCs (Review Committees) to improve programs more quickly through the annual review of programs on probation or warning to determine whether these programs are rapidly improving, or whether problems persist.
  2. The high percentage of programs on warning and probation that moved to a status of Continued Accreditation, and the more than 70% of citations that are resolved from year to year, suggests that the annual review cycle provides adequate time for programs to make improvements in most areas.
