Surgery Review Committee 
Education Requests
Flexibility in education requests will be considered for the following three purposes:
  • Focused training during which chief residents will have more than six months of essential content in one area during the PG-5 year;
  • Unique educational opportunities for residents to have up to six months of chief experience during the PG-4 year;
  • Establishment of an education “track” (e.g., rural, burn) where only some residents elect to complete a structured “track” curriculum.
Information is available on the Documents and Resources page of the Surgery section of the ACGME website. E-mail questions to Associate Executive Director Cathy Ruiz.
 
Case Log Update
Following discussions with the complex general surgical oncology community, the Review Committee has removed the requirement to designate one code as “primary” in an individual fellow’s Case Log. This will allow all procedures to count toward the fellow’s Case Logs and will allow more than one fellow to take credit for a procedure on a patient.
