Abstract

Abstract The ACR’s Practice Guidelines, Technical Standards, and Appropriateness Criteria are useful tools in resident education. The Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education (ACGME) is increasing its focus on assessing educational outcomes in resident education to ensure that graduating residents have achieved competence to the level expected of new practitioners. The Appropriateness Criteria can be used to educate residents in cost-effective imaging practice, while the Practice Guidelines and Technical Standards are useful tools for educating residents in patient care. Incorporating these ACR resources into the resident curriculum and the goals and objectives of the training program provides a means of addressing the new ACGME requirements.
