Institutional Sponsorship FAQs

  • Are there any distance restrictions for institutions to gain ACGME accreditation as institutional sponsors?

  • Does the sponsoring institution need to write checks to faculty members, staff members, and others, in order qualify as a sponsor?

  • How can a program change its sponsoring institution while it has “pre-accreditation status”? This is for AOA-approved programs concerned that their institution may not receive Institutional Accreditation.

  • If programs in different specialties that are sponsored by the same institution apply for accreditation, will a site visit be conducted for all programs at the same time?
