The recently announced recommendations of the Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education(ACGME) on revisions to the Common Program Requirements are the latest accommodation by the medical training system to improve patient safety and quality.1 This revision, along with the competency-based “milestone project” of the ACGME, represents progress in developing an outcomes-based training system that produces independent practitioners and an environment supportive of the well-being of trainees. We applaud the efforts of the ACGME to create a system that recruits and retains talented trainees, equips them to succeed in an evolving health care environment, and enables them to provide high-quality care.
