ACVECC Standards & Guidelines for residency training

The Residency Standards and Guidelines for residency training have been updated for 2021. All additions have been highlighted in aqua blue within the Standards document.

This most current version of the document applies to all Residents and Mentors, regardless of when training began. We recognize that changing requirements after a Training Plan has been accepted and training is underway may create challenges for the Mentor and Resident. However, it is very difficult for the committees to monitor the progress of all residents using multiple versions of the Residency Standards. If you have already started training and are unable to comply with any of the changes outlined in this document, you may petition the Credentials Committee for an exception.

2022 Updated Residency Standards

The Chairs of the Residency Training Committee, the Credentials Committee, and the Joint Committee on Training and Certification welcome questions or comments regarding the Standards. Please direct questions to the office of the ACVECC Executive Secretary. Thank you for your commitment to quality residency training.
