Advisory and Operational Support Projects

ACGME Global Services works with a wide variety of clients to assist in developing or enhancing post-graduate medical education (PGME) in their regions or countries. Below are three examples of such projects.

Saudi Commission for Health Specialties

Working under a contract with the Saudi Commission for Health Specialties (SCHFS), ACGME Global Services undertook a project to enhance PGME in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia. The project had two parts, with the first involving evaluations and recommendations related to the Kingdom’s national PGME activities, and the second involving evaluations and recommendations related to proposed new and existing training centers hosting programs that did not meet SCFHS accreditation requirements. Thirty-four training centers received physical site visits and several others were visited virtually. Assessments, gap analyses, and roadmaps for improvement were issued for the national program and for each training center visited.

Singapore Ministry of Health

The Singapore Ministry of Health (MOH) has requested assistance from ACGME Global Services in developing and implementing a new model of accreditation (NMA). The 98 PGME programs in Singapore are currently accredited either solely by ACGME International (ACGME-I), jointly by ACGME-I and the MOH, or solely by the MOH. Once implemented, the NMA will accredit all PGME programs in Singapore. ACGME Global Services is collaborating with the MOH to develop the NMA and will then assist in the transition of all programs to it.

National Institute of Health Specialties of the United Arab Emirates (UAE)

ACGME Global Services has signed a memorandum of understanding with the National Institute of Health Specialties (NIHS) of the UAE to improve the medical competencies framework and develop the quality of medical education in the UAE through a uniform PGME and specialty training system in accordance with internationally recognized standards.
