U.S. Residency Programs Under Probation

The ACGME is incharge of accrediting U.S. medical and surgical residencies. There are three decisions that can be made: Accreditation, probationary accreditation, or withdrawl of accreditation. The ACGME compiles an up-to-date list of residency programs under probation or with withdrawn accreditation in all specialties. I had previously reported on the list for 2012, but many of these programs have either dissolved or have been able to regain good standing with the ACGME. Rather than list all the current institutions on probation, a list which is always in flux, it is best to search the database yourself. You can search for all specialies, or by a single specialty. This is probably a very good thing to do when deciding where to apply.

      Thank you for bringing this to our attention Dr. Stumpf. The record has been deleted from the post. -Admin

    This entire post should be deleted, it is entirely likely that none of these programs is currently on probation and it gives the wrong impression to applicants or current residents to do a search for the program name and get a hit like this.  Please consider doing so and/or pointing back to the ACGME web site which would have a CURRENT list of programs on probation.

      I agree with most this comment. This is an outdated list and I apologize for leaving names up to long. I will delete specific names and direct readers to the current ACGME lists. However, the "whole post" certainly does not need to be deleted. I think it is VERY important for students to know about accreditation status of future residencies. Thanks everyone.
