The review process is used to evaluate new program applications, triennial/quadrennial reviews, Exit Surveys and requests to change fellowship director and increase approved fellowship positions. These are first reviewed by the Subspecialty Managers who then make a recommendation to the AUPO FCC Review Committee.
The Review Committee is charged with reviewing programs on a triennial basis and through fellow exit surveys, to ensure that programs are deemed compliant under the subspecialty requirements. This is a voting based system and each program has the opportunity to appeal the decision if deemed necessary.
Committee members may:
- Approve: Program meets all requirements
- Monitor: Approve with an annual evaluation due to minor issues
- Hold: Suspend voting until clarification from program is received
- Reject: Program does not meet requirements
