  • ACGME response to COVID19 and questions received regarding surveys (updated April 17, 2020)

    To allow the GME community to prioritize patient care duties in line with COVID-19 responsibilities, the ACGME has suspended the requirement to complete the ACGME Resident/Fellow and Faculty Surveys. Surveys will remain available to scheduled participants and the survey closing date has been extended to June 26th, 2020, but participation is optional. Currently, scheduled programs who choose to continue administering the surveys can still remind survey takers using the reminder tool in ADS, but the ACGME will no longer send reminders.

    For those programs that have already reported, and those who choose to continue participating, we will work to create program-specific reports when there is a large enough response rate to protect the confidentiality of the participants. We appreciate the response we have received so far, and will be providing future updates on the availability of program reports.

  • ACGME Resident/Fellow Portal – Beta


    For specialties and subspecialties that do not use the Case Log System, please share the following with your residents (in specialties and subspecialties that do use the Case Log System, residents and fellows already have access to these features):

    ADS has launched a beta version of a new tool for residents/fellows to retrieve their Milestone evaluations and the program-level aggregated results of their Resident/Fellow Survey reports. The Resident/Fellow Portal will also allow users the ability to edit some of their personal information.

    To create their Resident/Fellow Portal account, individual residents and fellows should visit https://apps.acgme.org/ads/public/residentportal/search, or click Resident/Fellow Portal from the ADS login page, and enter their relevant information.
