In the normal course of business, training programs may wish to fill an approved residency/fellowship line off-sync due to changes in trainee employment. All changes to trainee employment must be immediately submitted to the Director of Human Resources.
Requests to replace/fill a vacant trainee line must be submitted to the Director of Accreditation/Assistant DIO as soon as possible prior to making an offer to the prospective trainee. These requests require financial approval, even when replacing a line that has previously been approved in the Annual Plan. Increases in the number of trainees beyond the program’s ACGME-approved complement must be approved by the ACGME prior to offering the position to the prospective trainee.
