TOPIC:

 

Residency Program Closure/Reduction

PURPOSE:

 

To establish guidelines in the event of a residency program closure or reduction

POLICY:

 

AIMMC will make every effort to assist residents in the continuation or completion of their education in the event of a residency program closure or reduction

Procedure

  • In the event that the AIMMC decides to reduce the number of positions in or intends to close a training program, the GMEC (ERC), DIO, and the residents currently in training will be notified as soon as possible. If possible, reductions will be made over a period of time to allow all residents to complete training. In the event that an ACGME action or decreased financial or educational resources force the closure of a training program, AIMMC will assist residents, displaced by the closure of a program or a reduction in the number of residents, in identifying a program in which they can continue their education.
  • In the event of a disaster affecting any Advocate hospital/medical center program, whenever and wherever possible, transfer of residents is to remain within the Advocate system.
