EMRA responds to the New ACGME Common Program Requirements and Proposed Requirement Changes to the RRC for EM

November 2, 2018

EMRA, AAEM, AACEM, CORD and SAEM  issued a unified response and support for protected faculty time to the Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education (ACGME) regarding the ACGME's new Common Program Requirements (CPR) and upcoming changes to the Residency Review Committee for Emergency Medicine (RRC-EM) requirements.

We are extremely concerned about the current Common Program Requirements (CPR) and its potential impact on our 18,000 members, spanning over 230 emergency medicine programs across the country and the clinical faculty who train them. While the previous CPR (I.A.1.) included a placeholder that allowed for the RC-EM to protect program director, associate program directors, and core faculty, the new CPR does not.
