With the goal of achieving overall program improvement, the ACGME Self-Study is a comprehensive evaluation of each residency or fellowship program. Using a SWOT (strengths, weaknesses, opportunities, threats) analysis, programs will measure effectiveness before the 10-year ACGME Accreditation site visit.
The Program Administrator will work with the Program Director to perform the following:

  • Assemble the self-study group
  • Engage program leaders in discussions regarding program aims
  • Synthesize data from annual program evaluations
  • Create a longitudinal assessment of program strengths and areas for improvement
  • Examine opportunities and threats within the program
  • Obtain stakeholder input on strengths and areas for improvement
  • Maintain meeting minutes
  • Complete the summary of achievements

This is performed once, per 10-year cycle.
