ACGME staff members will be available in the ACGME Hub, located in the Exhibit Hall, for drop-by consultations during the Marvin R. Dunn Welcoming Poster Reception and Exhibitor Kick-Off March 7 and during Friday and Saturday lunches March 8-9.  On-site registration will be available in Orlando.

The ACGME is committed to helping faculty members develop skills used to effectively educate residents and fellows. A webinar about the Remediation Toolkit will be held February 6 and a workshop on the Direct Observation Toolkit will be held February 12. 

Applicants are eligible from any specialty or subspecialty in graduate medical education programs, and through ACGME-I or any international post-medical school program. The deadline for applications is March 11, 2024.

 The ACGME, in partnership with the Docs with Disabilities Initiative, is a recipient of the Josiah Macy Jr. Foundation Catalyst Award for Transformation in Graduate Medical Education for a project aimed to support education, and enhance disability inclusion, learner safety, and accessibility in the clinical learning environment for residents and fellows.   

This initiative supports resident- and fellow-directed innovations. Awardees participate in Learning Collaboratives throughout the funding period to workshop and refine their projects and develop leadership skills. The work is shared on a national platform in a variety of ways.

Karl Y. Bilimoria, MD, MS and Yue-Yung Hu, MD, MPH will discuss results of trials developed to leverage quality improvement approaches to reduce physician burnout and mistreatment and give participants actionable steps to improve the culture of residency on Saturday, March 9, 2024 10:00-11:15 a.m.

Are all residency and fellowship programs in the US ACGME-accredited?

No. ACGME accreditation is a voluntary process programs and the institutions that sponsor them choose to complete. There are residency and fellowship programs that are not accredited by the ACGME. In some cases, this is because the ACGME does not yet accredit a particular specialty or subspecialty. In other cases, programs and/or institutions have opted not to apply for accreditation from the ACGME. Residency programs that are not accredited by the ACGME do not receive Medicare funding from CMS for Direct Graduate Medical Education (DGME) and Indirect Medical Education (IME).

Does the ACGME accredit US medical schools?

No. The ACGME only accredits GME programs and the institutions that sponsor them (“Sponsoring Institutions”). The Liaison Committee on Medical Education (LCME) accredits US allopathic medical schools and is sponsored by the Association of American Medical Colleges (AAMC) and the American Medical Association (AMA). US osteopathic medical schools are accredited by the Commission on Osteopathic College Accreditation (COCA) of the American Osteopathic Association (AOA).
