EME-003: Due Process for Housestaff

Due Process for Housestaff: The Wisconsin Medical Society supports:

  • The July 2003 Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education (ACGME) doctrine of “fair institutional policies and procedures for academic or other disciplinary actions taken against physicians in training.”
  • Adjudication of physicians-in-training complaints related to actions that could result in dismissal or could threaten career development.
  • Incorporation of language into physician-in-training contracts that requires the program to provide an annual written contract no later than March 1 that provides a reasonable timeframe to initiate an appeal for nonrenewed contracts. (HOD, 0412)
