  2. Each residency program will take into account when instituting such policies the requirements of the appropriate accrediting body (ACGME, AOA, CPME, ADA), Residency Review Committee requirements, and the appropriate Board requirements.
  3. Each program will present the policy to the Education and Research Committee.
