The Residency Review Committee (RRC) considers the application for provisional approval by mail ballot, conference call, or at one of its semi-annual meetings. The RRC will consider a complete application within 60 calendar days of its receipt.
The RRC reviews the application to determine whether the new residency is eligible for on-site evaluation. In determining eligibility, the RRC will not consider a number of resident positions other than that for which the institution has applied. The RRC has the prerogative of taking no action on the application in order to request further information from the sponsoring institution and/or to discuss the application during a subsequent conference call or upcoming regularly-scheduled meeting.
When the RRC determines that a new residency is eligible for on-site evaluation, this status indicates that the institution appears to be developing a residency that has the potential for meeting the standards and requirements for approval by the Council on Podiatric Medical Education. Neither eligibility for on-site evaluation nor the conduct of an initial on-site evaluation ensures eventual approval.
There are no eligible programs at this time.
