Life sciences and healthcare spring webinar series

Event Details


United States Accreditation 1.0 CLE | March 19, 2020

The Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education (the ACGME) is the national accrediting body for all institutions that sponsor residency and fellowship training programs throughout the country (MD and DO). It uses accreditation as the vehicle through which it assesses the ability of institutions, and the GME programs they sponsor, to train physicians so that they have the necessary competence to function within their chosen specialty areas. In furtherance of its mission to ensure that residents and fellows receive quality education and training, the ACGME strictly construes its standards and requirements for sponsors and programs. This webinar will discuss how the ACGME has been evaluating institutions and programs under the continuous accreditation structure of its NEXT Accreditation System, and the important elements that sponsors and programs need to demonstrate to the ACGME in order to maintain their accreditation.
