FAQ’s for Trainees

  1. My program has applied for accreditation with ACGME. Am I still required to submit Annual Resident Reports to the ACOS?

    All trainees in programs that have not fully transitioned to ACGME will need to complete the Resident Annual Report. Annual Report results are shared with the AOA and AOBS. As such, if we do not receive the required information, board eligibility can be impacted.

    Check with your Program Director about your program’s accreditation status.

  2. Which Operative Log Report should I submit?

    • If using the ACOS Op-Log system, please submit the "Resident Operative Report"
    • If using the ACGME Op-Log System, please submit the "Experience by Role" report
    • If you are a graduating resident using the ACGME op-log system, please submit the "Experience by Year" report


      Operative reports are submitted though the Resident Evaluation of the Program Form. Residents should download a PDF file and submit the correct Operative Report based on the system used for their OGME training level and the 20-21 Training Year.
