Abstract

Through only a few months, the COVID-19 pandemic has greatly impacted the daily activities and education of surgical residents and fellows and the programs in which they are enrolled. The pandemic has also forced many changes for the Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education and its Review Committee for Surgery. This article details some of those changes and their effect on the process of conferring 2021 accreditation decisions by the Review Committee.
