Annual Educational Conference


I’d like to invite you to join us for the 2018 ACGME Annual Educational Conference at the Rosen Shingle Creek Resort in Orlando, Florida from March 1-4, 2018. This year’s conference theme is Engaging Each Other: Transformation through Collaboration, and through it we will celebrate the connections we make and the positive impact that has on graduate medical education overall. The ACGME Annual Educational Conference is one of the largest gatherings of graduate medical educators in the world, and engages designated institutional officials (DIOs), faculty members, program directors, program coordinators, residents, and others in GME who are passionate about education and collaboration.

As in previous years, we will showcase many current ACGME initiatives, including Physician Well-Being, the full implementation of the Next Accreditation System, Milestones, and the Clinical Learning Environment Review (CLER) Program. We will also continue to offer specialty-specific sessions and consultations for the Accreditation Data System (ADS), ACGME International, and Milestones.

As we continue to transition to a single GME accreditation system, we are pleased to offer educational opportunities for DIOs, program directors, faculty members, and program coordinators in osteopathic programs applying for ACGME accreditation. Once again, we are conducting an osteopathic pre-conference in collaboration with the Association of Osteopathic Directors and Medical Educators (AODME). Other pre-conferences include an introductory course for new program directors, a two-part DIO course for new and experienced DIOs, and the Annual Coordinator Forum.

This year’s sessions, selected from submissions from the GME community across the world, will focus on topics that improve the quality of residency and fellowship programs and encourage engagement and collaboration. Some of the highlights include Milestones and assessment, feedback techniques, resident remediation, the continued incorporation of quality improvement into graduate medical education, osteopathic-focused topics, physician well-being, and many others.

For the fifth consecutive year, we are pleased to host exhibitors as part of our conference. Additionally, we are again offering the Career Corner where participants have the opportunity to network and explore new professional opportunities. Our Poster Session will feature tracks focusing on the clinical learning environment and physician well-being, as well as innovations in other areas in the field.

We are excited to host our conference once again at the Rosen Shingle Creek Resort. This spectacular Orlando resort is just minutes from world famous attractions, and offers visitors everything one might look for in a conference destination, including fine dining and casual restaurants, a pool, spa, fitness center, and golf course.

Join us as we continue to build a strong community of learning filled with collaboration and compassion.
