Once the program/institution receives formal notification from the accrediting body,
it must inform the DIO, GMEC, and affected program directors, residents, and fellows
as soon as possible. No residents may be newly appointed unless the action is appealed.
All current residents and applicants (those invited for interviews) to the program
must be advised in writing of the programs/institution's status immediately. A phase-out
plan must be formulated, as in [institution closure] above. Also, when a Sponsoring
Institution or major participating site that is a hospital loses its accreditation,
the Sponsoring Institution must notify and provide a plan of response to the ACGME
Institutional Review Committee (IRC) within 30 days of such loss. Similarly, when
a Sponsoring Institution's or participating site's license is denied, suspended or
revoked, the Sponsoring Institution must notify and provide a plan for its response
to the IRC within 30 days of such loss or restriction.
