Site Visit

GME programs must be prepared for periodic on-site visits to assess compliance with Institutional and Program Requirements. Accreditation and recognition site visits will be conducted by ACGME Accreditation field representatives using remote technology; however, sponsoring institutions and programs will be notified when a site visit should be conducted in person. There are several types of GME site visits and include the following:

  • Program Applicants
  • Sponsoring Institutions and Programs with Initial Accreditation
  • Continued Accreditation: Annual Data Review Site Visit
  • Continued Accreditation: 10-Year Accreditation Site Visit
  • Probationary Accreditation
  • Complaint
  • Other Site Visits, (such as JCAHO) upon request
