Accreditation Outcomes

Royal College New Standards of Accreditation:

Process for Accreditation Recommendation / Report

The external program reviewers provide a preliminary report with a recommendation to the RCPSC Accreditation Committee. This committee only meets a few times a year, and then provides a final formal ruling. The report flows from the Royal College to the Dean's Office to the program directors of the program that was reviewed.

Accreditation Status: Accredited Program


  • Next Regular Accreditation
  • Review Action Plan Outcomes Report (APOR):
  • External Review
  • Residency program has demonstrated acceptable compliance with standards
  • Follow up at next site survey (with expectations of ongoing CQI throughout the cycle)

Accreditation Status: Accredited Program on Notice of Intent to Withdraw Accreditation


  • Accredited Program on Notice of Intent to Withdraw Accreditation
  • One (or more) significant areas for improvement impacting quality of the program with requires follow up prior to the next regular onsite review which can be evaluated via submission of evidence from the program
  • The process for this is determined by the Institution (internal review, focused self-study, targeted action)
  • Follow up will align with predictable two year timeline
  • One (or more) significant areas for improvement impacting the overall quality of the program which requires follow-up prior to the next onsite review and which can best be evaluated by external peer reviewers.

Accreditation Status: Withdrawal of Accreditation


  • New Application

Miscellaneous Other Notes

  • If a program has a resident match after 2 years without a resident, then that program has to have an Internal Review within one year
  • When a preliminary Survey Report is given to a program, and the reviewers ask for a written report Program Response, one has to be provided even if there are no errors or changes to be made to the Survey Report.
  • The official report from the Royal College advising the program of the survey results will take several months to be processed, ie, up to 4-5 months.
