Our representation at the RRC meeting was silent and many of the PD's did not know about the changes until after they were being made.
Makes you wonder what
exactly were many of these PD's doing when the changes were being suggested...I figure, too busy making money to give a crap at the time.
The thing I suspect these now non-accredited fellowships lost the most out on was the free slave labor they were acquiring. Many PM&R applicants have wised up, and unless residents know they can get their accreditation, they aren't even bothering to apply to these programs. Especially when hospital privileges can be limited by your ACGME Board Certification.
The writing was on the wall well before now...most just refused to see it.
