Clinical Learning Environment Review
The Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education (ACGME) recognizes the public's need for a physician workforce capable of meeting the challenges of a rapidly evolving health care environment. The ACGME has responded to this need by implementing the CLER program as a part of its Next Accreditation System.
The feedback provided by the CLER program is designed to improve how clinical sites
engage resident and fellow physicians in learning to provide safe, high quality patient
The only accreditation requirement associated with this new program is that each SI
must undergo a CLER visit every 24 to 36 months to maintain accreditation.
