ACGME Coordinator Advisory Group


The Coordinator Advisory Group serves as a consultative body to the ACGME administration concerning coordinator, graduate medical education, learning environment, and accreditation matters.

The Coordinator Advisory Group is comprised of up to 12 members. Of these, two to three members are institutional coordinators, and two to three members are program coordinators representing a range of specialties and subspecialties.

To be considered for membership, eligible coordinators are nominated by their program director or designated institutional official. As part of the selection process, the ACGME considers diversity in terms of geography, type and size of program and institution, specialty, and professional experience. Members have a minimum of five years of experience as an institutional or program coordinator.

The Coordinator Advisory Group meets twice a year, and members serve three-year terms. Tentative future meeting dates are listed below, and are subject to change. Teleconferences may be scheduled between meetings as needed.

  • 2021: May 6-7 and September 9-10
  • 2022: May 5-6, 2022
