Completion Certificate Policy
Completion certificates are ordered by the GME Office for completion of Internships, Residencies and Fellowships for residents/fellows in ACGME and ADA-accredited programs with contracts through the GME Office.
Certificate requests for residents/fellows completing on-cycle are due by the last business day of January each year. Certificate requests for residents/fellows completing off-cycle must be submitted 6 weeks prior to the completion date in order to receive their certificate on the last day of the resident/fellow’s contract.
The GME Office covers the cost of completion certificates ordered through the GME Office with the following exceptions:
- Any request placed 60-days after the completion date is charged to the department.
- All duplicate certificate requests need to be prepaid by the former resident/fellow – see Certificate Request under the Forms Appendix.
Certificate requests must be submitted in writing and signed by the Program Director or Department Chairman. All requests must include the following:
- Complete resident/fellow name as it is to appear on the certificate
- Resident/fellow’s credentials
- Degree awarded (i.e. Intern in Medicine, Resident in Medicine, Fellow in Nephrology)
- Dates of attendance
Certificates are not released to the departments until the last day of the resident/fellow’s contract and without a completed Clearance Sheet submitted to the GME Office. Certificates are only released to the department Program Coordinator or his/her designee.
Please Note: It is the Program Coordinator's responsibility to obtain the required signatures on each completion certificate.
