NAS
• Ongoing data collection and trend
analysis
• Enhance oversight to ensure high
quality education and a safe and
effective learning environment
• High-quality programs will be freed to
innovate – detailed process standards
• Programs with continued accreditation in
good standing will not have to demonstrate
compliance with the “detail” program
requirements as written, but are allowed to
innovate
© 2012 Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education (ACGME)
What are core, detail and outcome
program requirements?
• Core Requirements: Statements that define structure,
resource, or process elements essential to every
graduate medical educational program.
• Detail Requirements: Statements that describe a
specific structure, resource, or process, for achieving
compliance with a Core Requirement. Programs in
substantial compliance with the Outcome Requirements
may utilize alternative or innovative approaches to meet
Core Requirements.
• Outcome Requirements: Statements that specify
expected measurable or observable attributes
(knowledge, abilities, skills, or attitudes) of residents or
fellows at key stages of their graduate medical
education.
© 2012 Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education (ACGME)
What are core, detail and outcome
program requirements?
• II.A.2. Qualifications of the program director must
include:
• II.A.2.b) current certification in the subspecialty by
the American Board of Emergency Medicine, or
specialty qualifications that are acceptable to the
Review Committee; and, (Core)
• II.A.2.d) at least three years’ experience as a core
physician faculty member in an ACGME-accredited
emergency medicine program or emergency medical
services program; (Detail)
• IV.A.2.a).(2).(b).(i) participation in a mass
casualty/disaster triage at an actual event or drill;
(Outcome)

Do I have to adhere to the “detail” program
requirements?
• Programs that have initial accreditation or are in
trouble must demonstrate compliance with all
“detail” program requirements as written.
• Programs that have continued accreditation will
be allowed to “innovate” on those program
requirements that are identified as “detail”.

Adverse Actions: What hasn’t changed
• A program on Withdrawal can complete the
current academic year

Relationship of Core and Subs
Fellowships must have a relationship with a core
residency program
• Self-study visits of core and associated fellowships will
occur at the same time
• Adverse action in core results in the same status for their
associated fellowships
• Withdrawal of core means withdrawal of all associated
fellowships
• New fellowships can only be granted IA status if core
status is Continued Accreditation

Faculty Roster
• When completing
the faculty roster
in ADS, enter
core EMS
faculty that have
at least 5 hours
per week and
any other nonEMS physicians
who provide at
least 10 hours
per week
© 2012 Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education (ACGME)
Faculty Qualifications
• If faculty members are ABOEM boarded and
obtain the specialty certificate in EMS from the
ABOEM, does the RC view this as being
“acceptable”?
• A CAQ in EMS by the ABOEM is viewed as
being acceptable
© 2012 Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education (ACGME)
For Requested Positions, can I ask for a
range, e.g. 1-2?
• The RC-EM does not accept ranges of positions,
only a specific number, so instead of requesting
1-2 position, you should request 2 positions (you
are not required to fill all positions).
• You need to demonstrate in your application that
you have enough resources to support the
number of fellows requested. (e.g. you would
need to have enough opportunity to have each
fellow lead a disaster drill if that is part of your
program so you provide the same experience for
both fellows.)

How do I know if I need a PLA?
• Here is an FAQ regarding Master Affiliation
Agreements and PLAs. There is a PLA template at
the end of the document/site:
http://www.acgme.org/acgmeweb/Portals/0/PDFs/F
AQ/ab_FAQAgreement.pdf
• Program letters of agreement originate at the
program (instead of the institutional) level and are
required for each participating site providing a
required assignment.
• Program letters of agreement are required between
the residency program and all sites to which
residents rotate for required education or
assignments.
© 2012 Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education (ACGME)
How do I know if I need a PLA?
However, if the two sites operate essentially as one entity,
that is, they are governed by one governing body (e.g.
Board of Directors) neither a master affiliation agreement
nor a program letter of agreement would be
necessary. Program letters of agreement are not
necessary if the following on-campus or off-campus site is
under the governance of the sponsoring institution or is an
office of a physician who is a member of the sponsoring
institution’s teaching faculty/medical staff: nursing and
assisted-living homes; hospice facilities; faculty patient care
offices; private physicians’ offices (volunteer faculty);
ambulatory surgical centers; diagnostic centers, e.g.
imaging, laboratory, etc.; treatment centers, e.g. dialysis,
rehabilitation, chemotherapy, etc.; other similar sites.

New EMS FAQ for PLAs
Question
When is it necessary for a program to obtain a
Program Letter of Agreement (PLA) with an EMS
agency? [Program Requirement I.B.1]
© 2012 Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education (ACGME)
New EMS FAQ for PLAs
Answer:
There must be a program letter of agreement (PLA) between the
program and each participating site providing a required assignment. A
fellow may interact with a number of EMS agencies in different
capacities.
The Review Committee guidelines on PLAs specify:
• A PLA is required for any EMS agencies with which the fellow
provides in person participation as part of the required curriculum
• If the sponsoring institution owns the company, no PLA is needed.
• If the participating site is an independent company, a PLA is still
needed for liability reasons even if the program director or a faculty
member of the EMS program is the medical director (and is signing
the document on behalf of the program and on behalf of the
participating site) at the participating site/independent company.

Medical School Letter of Understanding
I.B.6. The program must be affiliated with a medical school.
I.B.6.a) The program must have a written letter of
understanding which documents the duties and
responsibilities of both the medical school and the program.
This is similar to an affiliation agreement.
May state that the program will be compliant with the regulations and
rules of the institution in matters related to the functioning of the
program and that the institution will provide appropriate oversight to
assure compliance with accreditation standards as well as hospital and
state rules, regulations and laws
