Beall D. The Basic Requirements Institutions Must Provide Residents, Part 1. JAMA. 1999;282(1):98A. doi:10.1001/jama.282.1.98

The Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education (ACGME) requires
institutions that sponsor graduate medical education to provide a scholarly
environment and to be committed to excellence in education and patient care.
As part of this commitment, institutions must provide residents with enough
resources and support needed to meet their training requirements. The following
is an abbreviated checklist containing some of the institutional requirements
that are of particular importance to residents.
Residents should be given enough financial support so they can fulfill
the responsibilities of their educational programs.
Institutions must provide residents with professional liability coverage
for the duration of training. This coverage must provide legal defense and
protection against financial claims if a lawsuit is filed after the completion
of training and if the alleged acts or omissions by the resident occurred
within the scope of the educational program. The coverage should be consistent
with the institution's coverage for other medical/professional practitioners.
