The 2023 National Learning Community of Sponsoring Institutions Meeting will offer opportunities to share and connect with other institutional graduate medical education leaders. The ACGME seeks presentations, workshops, and posters aligned with specific educational pathways. The deadline has been extended through June 9.

Submit a session proposal for the 2024 ACGME Annual Educational Conference and share best practices and innovations with the graduate medical education community! Proposals are being accepted for conference concurrent sessions and Coordinator Forum and Osteopathic Recognition Full-Day Course sessions. The conference takes place March 7-9, 2024 in Orlando, Florida.

The ACGME has an abundance of tools and resources it has created and curated related to implementing well-being activities throughout graduate medical education and the clinical learning environment. Resources are geared toward both the individual and system-wide practice. Access them in Learn at ACGME.

The ACGME is excited and proud to introduce a redesign of the ACGME website. The updated site features an improved overall design, an enhanced user experience, a better interface, and a modern look and feel.

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).

The ACGME is committed to initiatives that enhance and improve US graduate medical education.
