The ACGME's institutional coordinator workshop, Introduction to Sponsoring Institutions and Clinical Learning Environments for New Institutional Coordinators, will be held in a virtual, eight-week course from September to November 2022. Participants will hear from Institutional Review Committee members, ACGME staff members, and experienced institutional coordinators on the role of the institutional coordinator and the basics of ACGME accreditation.
This course requires pre-work and real-time participation. The live sessions are highly interactive—attendee engagement is expected! There will be eight, two-hour live sessions in which participants will interact with ACGME staff members and network with colleagues. Live sessions are conducted through Zoom. To participate, registrants must be available during all times indicated. Registration is limited to 50 individuals and will be managed on a first come, first served basis. A certificate of completion will be provided to all participants who attend most of the sessions (at least seven), who participate in the pre-work, and who respond to the course evaluation survey.
Who Should Attend?
This course is designed for individuals who are newer to the institutional coordinator role and who are actively involved in the administration and management of an ACGME-accredited Sponsoring Institution. While this course is tailored to new institutional coordinators (two years or fewer), all interested institutional coordinators are welcome to enroll.
The course is not meant for program coordinators, program directors, associate program directors, or designated institutional officials (DIOs).
