ACGME Acknowledges AAIM Concerns about New Core Faculty FTE Requirements

September 2022--Through the work of a cross-council writing group, the Alliance developed a letter summarizing many of the concerns about the new program requirements for core faculty support of internal medicine residency and fellowship programs. Sent September 8, the letter to ACGME acknowledges the shared goal of providing outstanding training and the mutual commitment to prioritizing resources for education. However, the new requirements have raised several financial challenges and potential repercussions for training, compensation, and research that AAIM hopes to ameliorate through cooperation with ACGME and other key stakeholders.

Update:  In a September 21 response, ACGME shared that in response to the input from the Alliance and others, the current core faculty member FTE requirements for internal medicine subspecialties will not be enforced in 2023 and that they will be revised as part of the major revision of subspecialty program requirements currently underway.
