Application process and documents

Each program that applies for ACGME accreditation must be sponsored by a Sponsoring Institution that has one of the following ACGME-conferred statuses: Continued Accreditation, Initial Accreditation, and or Pre-Accreditation.

The Designated Institutional Official (DIO) is responsible for initiating a new program application within the Accreditation Data System (ADS) by clicking on “Sponsored Programs,” and then “New Program Application.”The DIO must then select the appropriate specialty or subspecialty from a drop-down list, designate the program director of the new program, and enter the program’s participating sites.

Once the DIO has completed these steps in ADS, the program director will be notified by e-mail, and must then log in to ADS to complete the application. Further guidance can be found by logging into at https://www.acgme.org/ads/ with the new program director’s login information. On the program’s Overview tab, you will find a “Program Application Instructions” menu containing helpful information and a link to further in-depth application instructions and FAQs.

Osteopathic Recognition Application

(3) pathways to acgme accreditation for Osteopathic programs

The first pathway (Pathway 1) is for AOA-approved programs with matriculated residents as of July 1, 2015. These programs are eligible for ACGME “pre-accreditation status”upon the ACGME’s receipt of completed application, and their graduates are deemed eligible for advanced training in ACGME-accredited programs under the eligibility standards in their specific chosen specialty/subspecialty that were in place on June 30, 2013. For the faculty members and program directors in these programs, there are specific modifications to the Common Program Requirements that allow for AOA-certified faculty members and an AOA-certified co-program director.

The second pathway (Pathway 2) is for those programs that are AOA-approved, but that do not have matriculated residents as of July 1, 2015. These programs are eligible for ACGME “pre-accreditation status” upon the ACGME’s receipt of completed application, and their graduates are deemed eligible for advanced training in ACGME-accredited programs under the eligibility standards in their specific chosen specialty/subspecialty that were in place on June 30, 2013. Their faculty members and program directors are not covered under the specific modifications to the ACGME Common Program Requirements created under the agreement among the ACGME, the AOA, and AACOM.

The third pathway (Pathway 3) is for programs that receive initial AOA approval after July 1, 2015. These programs will apply for ACGME accreditation as would any other new program. These programs are not eligible for “pre-accreditation status” upon the ACGME’s receipt of a completed application, their graduates are not eligible for advanced training in ACGME-accredited programs under the eligibility standards in their specialty/subspecialty that were in place on June 30, 2013, and their faculty members and program directors are not covered under the specific modifications to the ACGME Common Program Requirements created under the agreement among the ACGME, the AOA, and AACOM.
