Residency Accreditation Toolkit

Use this resource to get tips, techniques, and tools to help your program meet ACGME accreditation requirements. Streamline processes, train your faculty, empower your residency coordinator, use technology for accreditation support, and create a culture of assessment and performance improvement. 

Background & Introduction

With the launch of the Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education (ACGME) Milestones Project, residency programs faced new challenges in meeting the needs of their learners and fulfilling accreditation requirements. The current assessment paradigm has shifted from a checklist-driven system to one that emphasizes the role of formative feedback in professional development. 

The Society of Teachers of Family Medicine (STFM) assembled a task force of medical educators to create a single resource for information regarding accreditation and resident assessment for family medicine residency programs.

This resource includes ready-to-use tools, faculty development goals, and best practices that can be shared between programs. The toolkit is updated regularly under the supervision of the STFM Graduate Medical Education Committee. We hope that the toolkit serves you well as you train the future of family medicine.
