REDUCTION/CLOSURE POLICY FOR RESIDENCY PROGRAMS

If the ACGME withdraws accreditation of a program, or if a decision is made voluntarily to close a residency program, the Office of Graduate Medical Education will work with the department to establish a phase-out plan that allows currently enrolled residents to complete their training. If that is not possible, the Office of GME, in conjunction with the department, will assist the displaced residents in obtaining positions in another accredited training program.

In the event, MUSC decides to reduce the number of positions in any residency training program, the residents in that program will be notified by the Designated Institutional Official for GME.  Every effort will be made to accomplish the reduction without adverse effect on residents currently in training. If that is not possible, the Office of GME, in conjunction with the department, will assist the displaced residents in obtaining a position in another accredited training program.
