Due to the new Common Program Requirements that go into effect July 1, 2019, programs will begin to see changes reflected in the ADS data collection screens. These changes include the addition of new data fields and the removal of outdated data fields. As these changes occur, the "Software Updates" section of ADS will be updated to help track these changes after each update. The Software Updates notes can be found in the ADS menu located in the upper right corner beneath your name, or in the footer of every page in the bottom right corner. These newly added data fields may require completion as they appear in ADS, but they will not be mandatory until the 2019-2020 academic year annual update. The new Common Program Requirement data fields will begin to appear with software version 3.0.34 on 2/27/2019 and will continue with subsequent software updates until July 1, 2019. Applications:Programs that are currently applying for accreditation or recognition are strongly encouraged to submit their applications prior to the 2019-2020 academic year (prior to June 24, 2019). Applications submitted after June 24, 2019 will be required to complete the newly added data fields, confirm all residents, and re-enter other data collected by academic year.
Attention, users running Chrome, Firefox or Safari with plugins or extensions. If you are currently experiencing an incomplete User Interface (UI), please add "acgme.org" domain to your ad blocking plugin/extension whitelist. The reason for the page displaying without styles resides in the domain name having "ads" ex: apps.acgme.org/ads in which the plugin/extension reacts to "Ads".
Access to the Accreditation Data System (ADS) is secured by an encryption certificate obtained through the VeriSign Corporation. We use 128-bit SSL encryption to help ensure the secure transfer of information. If you are using a less secure encryption level you may experience difficulty and should upgrade.
The Case Log System utilizes Common Procedural Terminology (CPT) codes. The five character codes and descriptions included in the system are obtained from CPT, copyright 2019, by the American Medical Association (AMA). CPT is developed by the AMA as a listing of descriptive terms and five character identifying codes and modifiers for reporting medical services and procedures.
