The ACGME’s work directly impacts residents and fellows. Residents and fellows, through their involvement on the ACGME Review Committees, Resident Council (Council of Review Committee Residents or CRCR), Board of Directors, and other important task forces, councils, and committees, in turn, make a huge impact on the ACGME’s work. The resident voice is essential to the ACGME Mission and to the success of the organization’s important initiatives.
The Mission of the ACGME is to improve health care and population health by assessing and advancing the quality of resident physicians’ education through accreditation.
Through accreditation, innovations, and initiatives, the ACGME strives to ensure that residents and fellows train in educational environments that support patient safety, resident and fellow education, and physician well-being.
