This updates guidance provided in the following article published in the March 2014 issue of the Journal of Graduate Medical Education: Promes SB, Wagner MJ. Starting a clinical competency committee. J Grad Med Educ. 2014;6(1):163–164.

During the publication of this Rip Out, the ACGME made a number of refinements to its guidance for developing a CCC. The updated information is as follows:

  • 1.

    The Rip Out states CCC membership can include the residency coordinator.

  • Correction: While the presence of the residency or program coordinator at CCC meetings is desirable, the coordinator should not be a member of the CCC.

  • 2.

    The Rip Out states CCC membership can include peer-selected residents.

  • Correction: Recent ACGME guidance clarified that residents should not be on CCCs because they would be reviewing and gaining access to the performance records of peers.

The online version of this article has been updated to include this corrected information.
