To help ensure the best training possible, the ACMS developed the Grievance Committee to serve as a confidential review board for complaints by fellows-in-training or other participants in fellowship training programs. The Grievance Committee will receive and review all complaints from any source but is specifically intended as a method of regress for fellows.
The obligation of the fellow or complainant is to file a confidential grievance either verbally or in writing (preferred) to ACMS Staff and must include:
- The name of the complainant
- The details of the complaint
- The name of the involved program
- The name of other individuals involved in the complaint if any
- Any other relevant details.
Concerns are kept confidential and will be used as a quality assurance measure for the fellowship training programs. If you have concerns regarding a training program, please do not hesitate to send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
