Pediatric Urology Fellowship recieves full ACGME accreditation

 

12/1/2013

The ACGME  recently detailed the results of the recent Pediatric Urology external site review in a letter to the Division Head.  The communication informed the program that they received full continued accreditation with no citations.  Moreover, The program received a commendation for its demonstrated compliance with the ACGME's requirements for graduate medical education without citations.

 

This fellowship has undergone 2 external reviews since its inception.  During those assessments, they have received zero citations from the RRC and have garnered positive (and infrequently given) commendations during both reviews.  If there is another urology training program with such a record of accomplishment the division is unaware of it.

 

In a very short time, this program has become among the most admired in the country.

 

Gratitude also goes out to the Children's Hospital Colorado and the Department of Surgery for their ongoing support of this fellowship and to the Office of Graduate Medical Education for their continued support and guidance.  Additionally, thanks go to Beth Musser (Program Coordinator for the Urology Residency Program) for her expert advice, and Drs. Campbell, Vemulakonda and Cost for all they do on a daily basis to make this program so very special.
