ACGME Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education


This page offers links to the Journal of Graduate Medical Education (JGME), books, and papers published by ACGME on topics in graduate medical education, and GME Focus, a digest of literature relevant to program and institutional leaders and faculty in graduate medical education. The aim is to serve as a resource for program and institutional leaders, faculty, learners, and researchers.

JGME is the ACGME’s peer-reviewed publication. It is editorially independent from the ACGME. JGME has four aims, which were last reviewed by the Journal Oversight Committee and the ACGME Board of Directors in February 2015.

The four aims of JGME are:

  1. To be a leading peer-reviewed journal in GME;
  2. To promote scholarship and enhance the quality of research in the field;
  3. To disseminate evidence-based approaches related to educational curricula and content, assessment, and the learning environment; and
  4. To contribute to new knowledge that enhances the competence of residency graduates and their effectiveness in providing safe and high-quality patient care.
