WE NEED YOUR HELP IN ESTABLISHING WOUND CARE AS AN ACGME-APPROVED SPECIALTY!
– Reminder – Comments Due By February 20, 2019! –
Dear Wound Care Providers,
As you are aware, The American College of Wound Healing and Tissue Repair (ACWHTR) was founded almost a decade ago, with the sole purpose of helping to promote wound care towards specialty status. The ACWHTR submitted a proposal to the ACGME seeking formal acceptance and approval of this specialty at the highest level of medical education in the US. The ACWHTR has created a balanced educational fellowship program which, if approved, can be adopted by many academic centers and help drive innovation and improve the lives of many patients over the years.
Here’s How You Can Help
Please see Dr William Ennis’ letter inviting you to participate by reviewing the proposal and providing your feedback and comment to the ACGME. The enclosed PDF provides an explanation of the proposal and a link to the ACGME website to access both the proposal and comment document. The deadline for comment is February 20, 2019, so time is of the essence in getting your input on this important and historic proposal.
We appreciate your time and attention and willingness to participate.
