WHY… is my program initiating
CCC’s?
 ACGME mandate: ALL programs must have CCC’s up and
running by July 2013 as part of the Next Accreditation
System (NAS).
 All programs begin reporting aggregate data on
residents’ milestone achievement by December 2013.
 In NAS, CCC’s are integral in the process of interpreting
data and assigning milestone levels.

WHAT FOR?
 What purpose does the ACGME hope to accomplish by
requiring programs to establish CCC’s?
 Increase the validity and accuracy of program assessment of
resident competence throughout training and at graduation.
 Provide the benefit of “the insight and perspective of a group”
to the resident evaluation process.
 Assure that programs detect resident deficiencies EARLY and
provide meaningful recommendations for remediation.
 Ultimately assure the competence of graduates to practice
independently.

WHO…comprises the CCC?
 The ACGME allows programs flexibility.
 Some parameters:
 5-7 members
 MUST include clinically active core faculty “dedicated to
resident education.”
 MAY include non MD medical educators
 Suggestions:




PD,APD, core faculty
Faculty who primarily supervise in clinical setting
Site directors
Involved nursing staff

HOW will the CCC’s function?
 Meet quarterly, biannually, or more frequently as
necessary to allow semi-annual evaluation of each
resident
 Review multi-source data (previously compiled) for each
resident.
 Come to consensus on resident’s achievement of
milestone level (possible milestone level 1-5).
 Generate report with competency determination for
each resident with recommendation for advancement,
graduation or remediation.
10
HOW…will CCC’s function?
 CCC Chair (Ideally NOT PD) directs process
 Members must maintain confidentiality of proceedings
 Deliberations, decisions and reports may be protected
(not discoverable) under peer-review confidentiality
depending on state laws.
 Ongoing evaluation of CCC process to allow
recommendations for continued improvement of process
regarding activities of CCC
WHAT…are examples of data CCC
may use in resident assessment?
 In-Service Scores
 Direct observation data
 Rotation/shift evaluations
 Self evaluations/reflection
 Patient satisfaction data
 Adverse information
(complaints, misconduct)
 Procedure logs
 360 evaluations
 Scholarly work
 Oral board performance
 Administrative compliance
 Structured chart review
 Core measures
 Provider Reports

How will CCC’s compile data?
 Programs are free to develop Assessment Tools for
compiled data or use one already made.
 Consistency of approach will increase accuracy even for
un-validated assessment tools.
13
WHAT…is the role of the PD?
 Receives report/consensus determinations with
recommendations of CCC.
 Includes report in resident record.
 Carries responsibility of ultimate decision making with
regard to advancement, remediation, graduation.
