    RESIDENCY TRAINING PROGRAM REGISTRATION

    2009-2010

    CARDIOLOGY

    New applications for ACVIM Residency Training Programs must be received by the Residency Training Committee 90 days prior to any residents beginning training. Before completing this form, please review the general and specific requirements for cardiology residency training programs in the ACVIM General Information Guide (GIG). The most current version of the GIG is available on the ACVIM website at www.ACVIM.org. If there is a discrepancy between this form and the GIG, the GIG will be considered correct, however, please contact the ACVIM office or the Residency Training Committee Chairperson for clarification.

    Prior to making significant changes in a residency training program, approval of the ACVIM and Cardiology Resident Training Committee must be obtained. The candidate and/or program director must notify ACVIM, in writing. Significant changes could include, but are not limited to: changes in program director or any mentors, transferring from one program to another, alterations in program duration, switching to a ‘dual board’ program, or enrolling in an institutional graduate program.

    Notice: Some questions in this form are included for data collection purposes. The inclusion of an item does not imply that the item is a program requirement for ACVIM.

    For multi-site residency programs: To ensure uniformity of training and compliance with current GIG requirements, training programs which include multiple sites must provide detailed information as to which Diplomates in the specialty of Cardiology, as well as other Specialties, will be supervising the resident(s) at each site. In this updated program registration form, the program director must provide specific, detailed information regarding supervision and facilities available at each specific site(s).
