ABPTRFE meets two times annually to make renewal of accreditation decisions in January and September based on the renewal of accreditation tracks (e.g., Track One, Track Two), as outlined within the ABPTRFE Processes and Procedures.
ABPTRFE staff notifies programs scheduled for renewal of accreditation 15 months prior to the expiration of accreditation.
For issues regarding accessing the Accreditation Management System, please contact ABPTRFE staff.
The fees for residency and fellowship accreditation are established by ABPTRFE and are subject to change every two years.
- Annual Continuous Improvement Report
Every year, ABPTRFE requires an Annual Continuous Improvement Report submission by all accredited residency and fellowship programs. ACIR must be submitted through the Accreditation Management System by Jan. 31.
- Substantive Changes
A substantive change is one that may significantly affect a program's mission, quality, scope, or control. Board approval is required before the program can implement the substantive change.
