The Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education (ACGME) created the Clinical Learning Environment Review (CLER) program to evaluate teaching institutions in six focus areas, including patient safety. This article summarizes the impact of a Pediatric Residency Safety Council (PRSC) initiative on resident event reporting and safety attitudes. Over a five-year period, there was an increase in the percentage of residents who felt that could submit a safety report, but there was not a significant increase in the number of reports submitted. The authors propose that a resident-led council can help incorporate the CLER patient safety pathways into resident training programs. A PSNet Primer discusses  the importance of debriefing in patient safety events.
