Graduate Medical Education Policies and Procedures

Policy for Residency Closure/Reduction in Size

Should the sponsor intend to close a residency training program or reduce the size of a residency program, then the residents, the Graduate Medical Education Committee and the Designated Institutional Official will be informed at as early a date as possible. In case of such a closure or reduction or in case of the closure of a hospital, the program will attempt to allow residents already in the program to complete their education or will assist the resident in enrolling in an ACGME-accredited program in which they can continue their education.
