The Annual Program Evaluation Report Format has been revised and is ready for use. While individual program Annual Program Evaluation formats may vary and include areas not on the Report Format, all programs must use the Report Format for submission to the Graduate Medical Education Council. Submissions are due Oct. 1.

In compliance with the ACGME quality cycle approach to these reviews, each of the four APE areas (Evaluation of Program Quality, Evaluation of Resident Performance, Evaluation of Faculty Performance and Development, Evaluation of Graduate Performance) will require corrective action plans for identified deficit areas. We have developed APE resources for programs' benefit:

Section 8 (ACGME Self-Study Information) requires the Program Education Committee to begin the ACGME 10-Year Self-Study process. The entries are limited to the same word count as the ACGME Self-Study report format.

Report Format sections 1-7 should be completed prior to developing responses for section 8. Section 8 should be a living document to be reviewed and revised during each APE.

If you have questions or problems with the form, contact Dr. Linda Archer or Dr. Heather Newton at 757.446.6190.
