2019 Annual Educational Conference

2019 Annual Educational Conference Banner

Wow. The ACGME Annual Educational Conference was a truly remarkable event this year.
A record 3,739 attendees gathered to learn, to network, and most importantly, to Rediscover Meaning in Medicine.

Sessions included detailed, roll-up-the-sleeves work on accreditation, patient safety, the opioid crisis, the transition to a single GME accreditation system, the Milestones, and the CLER Program, as well as powerful, inspiring, and transformative discussions on diversity and inclusion, discrimination, bullying, harassment, and physician well-being.

The theme of this years’ conference, Engaging Each Other: Rediscovering Meaning in Medicine, was epitomized during the Marvin R. Dunn Keynote Address—an intimate, personal, and deeply moving session with Vivek H. Murthy, MD, MBA, 19th Surgeon General of the United States. With humor and humanity, Dr. Murthy related his experiences as a resident, newly licensed doctor, entrepreneur, and Surgeon General. He also led us on a personal journey through his childhood experiences with clinician parents and as the father of a young child undergoing a serious medical scare. Throughout this session—and indeed throughout this conference—attendees were continually reminded of the paramount importance of emotional health for clinicians and the patients they serve.

The sheer number of quality sessions this year made it impossible to take in everything, so we urge you to check out the ACGME blog over the next few weeks, where we will continue posting reports and recaps from the 2019 conference.

We look forward to seeing you in San Diego in 2020!


February 27 - March 1, 2020
