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. While most of the content has not changed, the navigation and placement of some of the content has. This update and orientation are intended to help users understand what went into and informed this redesign, and how to move around it and find what you’re looking for.
Working with both internal and external partners, the project began with an evaluation of key data, including heat maps and real-time recordings of user experience. This helped the project team understand how people were using the website, and what elements, sections, and pages were either hard to find or not regularly accessed.
As an outcome of this effort, the website’s architecture was restructured to surface sought-after and key content and make it easier to find. A new look and feel that is clean, modern, and dynamic accompanies this reorganization, including more photos and graphics to complement content. A few key navigational areas are highlighted below to help users acclimate to the new design.
Across the top of the website is a black bar referred to as the “utility nav.” From here. you can quickly and easily navigate to information about the organization, including:
About: Board of Directors and Councils of the Board, general ACGME FAQs, publications, policies, and more.
Newsroom and ACGME Blog.
For the first time, archives of the weekly e-Communication are now housed on their own page for easy reference.
Our Sites: found at the end of the utility nav, click here for information about and links to ACGME International, Learn at ACGME, the Journal of Graduate Medical Education, and the Accreditation Data System’s public site.
In conjunction with the redesign project, the ACGME conducted a concentrated companion project to improve search functionality on the website. Search optimization will continue following this launch, but users will already see improvements, including:
