§ 17.21. Definition.

 As used in this subchapter, a graduate medical trainee is a medical school graduate with a graduate license issued by the Board for training purposes.

Source

   The provisions of this §  17.21 adopted March 6, 1964; amended May 13, 1977, effective May 14, 1977, 7 Pa.B. 1280; amended January 2, 1987, effective December 31, 1986, 17 Pa.B. 24. Immediately preceding text appears at serial page (30209).

§ 17.22. Graduate medical trainee registration.

 (a)  A person may not practice medicine as a part of a graduate medical education program without a valid graduate license issued by the Board. The issuance of the license demonstrates the approval of the Board for participation of the designated trainee in the graduate medical education program. The training institution, as a prerequisite for maintaining its approved status in this Commonwealth, shall provide the Board with the information on its graduate medical trainees as required by the Board.

 (b)  A physician working in a hospital who does not possess a valid graduate license shall be reported to the Board.

 (c)  Short-term trainees and physicians from out-of-State or out-of country institutions doing rotations through training facilities in this Commonwealth shall submit an application for a graduate license and submit the fee in §  16.13 (relating to licensure, certification, examination and registration fees). The training institution shall accept full responsibility for the trainee.

Immediately preceding text appears at serial pages (185571) to (185572).

§ 17.23. Approval and accreditation of graduate training programs.

 The Board is responsible for determining the character of instruction and the facilities possessed by each of the various medical education institutions and hospitals who carry out graduate medical education programs in this Commonwealth. The Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education (ACGME) of the American Medical Association possesses the facilities and staffing required to perform evaluations of the qualifications of the various programs and also the mechanism for accreditation of acceptance programs. The Board and the ACGME work cooperatively in evaluating and approving the training programs in this Commonwealth. A comity exists between the Board and the ACGME under which all intended observations of training programs for accreditation are communicated to the Board and the Board makes all requests for accreditation or investigation of training programs to the ACGME. If an investigation of the programs of the various institutions in this Commonwealth is to be conducted, the Board will provide one of its members or appoint an individual to accompany the investigator on each occasion. An institution within this Commonwealth seeking approval of its programs by the ACGME will be informed that action taken by the accrediting agency will be related to the Board.

Notes of Decisions

   Final authority regarding accreditation of medical training facilities rests with the Board and not with a private accrediting body. McKeesport Hospital v. State Board of Medicine, 628 A.2d 476 (Pa. Cmwlth. 1993), petition for allowance of appeal granted February 11, 1994.

§ 17.24. Hospital affiliations.

 (a)  Under section 2 of the act (63 P. S. §  422.2), affiliation shall require Board approval. In order to determine whether to grant approval, the Board will require the following:

   (1)  A list of hospital affiliations indicating with which medical colleges or other accredited health care institutions a hospital has working arrangements and whether or not the affiliation is a comprehensive one or is limited to specific departments of medicine and surgery.

   (2)  A general description of the implementation of the affiliation in the working relationships of the institutions involved.

   (3)  Copies of affiliation agreements.

 (b)  The Board shall be notified by the hospitals when the affiliations are discontinued.
