Become part of a transformative program that reshapes the landscape of graduate medical education (GME). The ACGME Equity Matters program supports the GME community in developing innovative resources that increase workforce diversity, encourage adoption of equity practices, and foster inclusive learning environments.
Self-directed ACGME Equity Matters content modules are available in the ACGME’s online learning portal, Learn at ACGME. These educational resources provide diverse perspectives while raising historical and current injustices in the medical education system in an organized and intentional way. The materials are designed for organizations with leadership support, resources, and infrastructure commitments to equity for making meaningful change.
