New ACGME FAQ Page Addresses Common Questions and Misperceptions

March 3, 2022

In an effort to increase the public’s understanding of ACGME responsibilities and graduate medical education (GME) overall, the ACGME has developed a general FAQ page to answer often asked questions and address common misconceptions.

While these FAQs are not necessarily a comprehensive illustration of GME, the ACGME hopes they provide clarity about how the ACGME fits into GME, other organizations and their roles, and a basic understanding of the GME framework, and that they serve as a resource for GME and the public.

Topics include:

  • Accreditation
  • Complaints and Site Visits
  • Exams
  • Funding
  • General Questions
  • Resident and Fellow Employment
  • Programs and Institutions

The FAQs were developed in response to emails received, recent listening sessions with the GME community, and discussions on social media. Read the full FAQs on the ACGME website.
