ADS will be unavailable beginning June 25th at 11:59 PM Central Time until approximately 12:00 PM (noon) on Monday, June 26th to convert to the 2017-2018 academic year. Beginning June 26th, the ACGME data systems will reflect Academic Year 2017-2018, and all residents will have an unconfirmed status (similar to previous academic year rollovers).
The ADS 2017-2018 Academic Year Annual Updates will be scheduled from July through September 2017. All required data must be reported on or before a program’s scheduled due date. An initial notification e-mail will be sent at the beginning of the reporting time frame with reporting requirements.
E-mail ADS@acgme.org with any questions or concerns.

Attention, users running Chrome, Firefox or Safari with plugins or extensions. If you are currently experiencing an incomplete User Interface (UI), please add "acgme.org" domain to your ad blocking plugin/extension whitelist. The reason for the page displaying without styles resides in the domain name having "ads" ex: apps.acgme.org/ads in which the plugin/extension reacts to "Ads".
Access to the Accreditation Data System (ADS) is secured by an encryption certificate obtained through the VeriSign Corporation. We use 128-bit SSL encryption to help ensure the secure transfer of information. If you are using a less secure encryption level you may experience difficulty and should upgrade.
The Resident Case Log System utilizes Common Procedural Terminology (CPT) codes. The five character codes and descriptions included in the system are obtained from CPT, copyright 2014 by the American Medical Association (AMA). CPT is developed by the AMA as a listing of descriptive terms and five character identifying codes and modifiers for reporting medical services and procedures.
ACGME Data Systems can be accessed anywhere with an internet connection via a computer using Microsoft Windows or Apple Mac operating systems. To utilize current features and future enhancements completely, please access our systems using one of the supported web browsers listed below.
The web browser requirement includes all the ACGME Data Systems: Case Log System, Survey and Accreditation Data System.
Note: Due to security concerns identified by Microsoft, ACGME will no longer support Internet Explorer (IE) versions 10 and below at the end of June 2016. The discontinued support of IE versions 10 and below will apply to the Case Log System, Surveys, and the Accreditation Data System. If you are using Internet Explorer, we strongly advise switching to another browser to ensure that you are viewing the latest versions of the posted documents.
Be aware that our upgraded data collection system will work in IE 10 but you may experience decreased user interface experience and functionality.
