HVA RE-ACCREDITATION Criteria
Training Programs will be responsible for training new nephrology fellows in Interventional Nephrology and can provide training resources for nephrologists who are already in practice. Therefore, it is essential that these programs meet specific requirements to assure that their graduates will be able to fulfill the training requirements outlined herein.
Training Programs are accredited for 5 years.
A Re-Accreditation application should be submitted at least 6 months prior to the accreditation expiration date. A 3-month grace period following the Accreditation expiration will be in effect if the Re-Accreditation application has been submitted by the expiration date but processing by ASDIN has not been completed. This grace period may be extended at the discretion of the ASDIN Certification and Accreditation Committee if scheduling or other special circumstances are deemed to exist.
If a training program’s Accreditation has been expired for more than 6 months without application for Re-Accreditation, a new Accreditation application and corresponding fee will be required to reinstate Accreditation.
Re-Accreditation will be granted for five (5) years and begins on the original Accreditation anniversary date no matter when the Re-Accreditation application is submitted and approved by ASDIN.
Note: The Accreditation for the Training Program is tied to the sponsoring center, not with the program director.
Further documentation is required prior to the term expiration for the following reasons:
¨ Change in program facility location – additional fee ($100) and site visit required.
¨ Change in program director – additional fee ($100) and committee review required
¨ Change in facility ownership – additional fee ($100) and committee review required
If the Training Program has any of these changes prior to the expiration of the 5-year accreditation term, please review the appropriate section for specific requirements.
