Changes to the Privileging Dictionaries

More than 300 BC medical professionals and specialty experts developed the original 62 privileging dictionaries over 3 years. Changes to the dictionaries will occur in an iterative process, as part of a structured review and refresh of each dictionary’s content. The first refresh cycle begins in fall 2016.
