Current Program Requirement II.A.2.b) states:
"Program directors of programs approved for 18-35 residents must be provided no less than 35 percent of the aggregate support defined in the table above, and program directors of programs approved for 36 or more residents must be provided no less than 50 percent of the aggregate support defined in the table above [II.A.2.a)].(Core)”
There has been confusion in the community regarding the term “aggregate.” The Review Committee will initiate a focused revision to make the following change for clarity:
“Program directors of programs approved for 18-35 residents must be provided no less than 35 percent of the aggregate support defined in the table above, and program directors of programs approved for 36 or more residents must be provided no less than 50 percent of the aggregate support defined in the table above [II.A.2.a)]. (Core)”
The Review Committee for Emergency Medicine seeks two individuals to work on a data-driven project related to a major revision of the Program Requirements.

Residents or fellows with an interest in acquiring knowledge and skills in data analysis and preparing a potential scholarly publication are encouraged to apply. The candidate must:

The Subspecialty-Specific Background and Intent related to program director and faculty qualifications was updated in 2021 to extend the date by which the program director and faculty members are expected to hold current subspecialty certification in pediatric hospital medicine to 2025. The new dates were inadvertently omitted from the last revision of the Program Requirements. The updated language has been restored in the documents available on the Program Requirements and FAQs and Applications page in the Pediatrics section of the ACGME website.
Effective July 1, 2023, the Program Requirements for Pediatric Urology and for Female Pelvic Medicine and Reconstructive Surgery will include the Common Program Requirements related to fellowship eligibility exceptions.
