The Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education (ACGME) recently released proposed changes to its Common Program Requirements (CPR) that threatened to remove the requirement for residencies to protect a portion of faculty time for core faculty. ACEP sent a letter to ACGME explaining why the proposed changes, a standardized, one-size-fits-all approach for all specialties, would be detrimental to emergency medicine. In response to letters from ACEP and other emergency medicine organizations, the ACGME has decided to reconsider its proposed changes.
