  • What:Body responsible for approving any residency training program in the US, only after approval and achiving certain standards, the residencies could apply for recognition by the American Board of Medicinal Specialities, and only after recognition by the board of medical speciality, the resident could apply for state licence to practice his speciality, only at that time the resident could apply to work in a hospital or a clinic and only at that time the hospital or the clinic could ask the insurance company to pay for what ever service this physician is providing.Why: multiple incentives for US hospital to have ACGME accredited program1-improving quality of care: by trying to meeti the ACGME standard2-Research incentives: legibility for research grant3-Perstigue4-Patient Centered Care5-Team Building cheap labour2-high compensation 150K/yr/ resident3-
  • Accreditation of residency programs and sponsoring institutions by the ACGME is a voluntary process of evaluation and review performed by a non-governmental agency of peers. The goals of the process are to evaluate, improve, and publicly recognize programs or sponsoring institutions in GME that are in substantial compliance with standards of educational quality established by the ACGME. Accreditation was developed to benefit the public, protect the interests of residents, and improve the quality of teaching, learning, research, and professional practice

    1. 1. ACGME/I Accreditation Council of Graduate Medical Education/International Accreditation Orientation, Action plan and timeline<br />Khaled Said, MD<br />ACGME/I Emergency Medicine Coordinator<br />
    2. 2. What is the Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education? <br />The ACGME is a private, nonprofit organization that accredits about 8,700 residency programs in 130 specialties and subspecialties that educate about 109,000 residents. <br />Established in 1981 out of a consensus need in the medical community for an independent accrediting organization for graduate medical education programs<br />Mission is to improve health care by assessing and advancing the quality of resident physicians’ education through exemplary accreditation. <br />Governed by nominated Board of directors from American Association of Medical Colleges, American Board of Medical Specialties, American Hospital Association, American Medical Association, Council of Medical Specialty Societies, and a non-voting federal representative appointed by the Department of Health and Human Services <br />
    3. 3. How does the accreditation process work?<br />The work of reviewing specific programs and making accreditation decisions is carried out by 27 Residency Review Committees, one for each major specialty <br />The Institutional Review Committee accredits institutions that sponsor residency programs. <br />RRC members are volunteer physicians appointed by the appropriate medical specialty organization, medical specialty board and the AMA Council on Medical Education.<br />
    4. 4. ACGME field staff representatives conduct one-day site visits to programs once every two to five years, depending on the strength of the program. <br />About one-third of the programs are visited each year. <br />The field staff representatives write objective narrative reports about the programs they visit, based on:<br />Lengthy interviews with the program directors, <br />Faculty<br />Residents<br />Review of supporting documents. <br />
    5. 5. The RRCs, which on average meet three times a year, review the site visitors’ reports, along with data provided by the programs. <br />The RRC members then vote on the appropriate accreditation action for each program on the agenda for that meeting: <br />New programs are given initial accreditation.<br />Continuing programs are given full accreditation if they substantially comply with the ACGME common and specialty-specific requirements. <br />Programs that have deficiencies:<br />Accreditation with warning<br />Probationary accreditation.<br />Accreditation withdrawn: Programs that subsequently fail to demonstrate that they have corrected their deficiencies may have their.  <br />
    6. 6.
    7. 7. If applying for accreditation is a voluntary process, why do it?<br /> Programs must be ACGME-accredited in order to receive graduate medical education funds from the federal Center for Medicare and Medicaid Services. <br />Residents must graduate from ACGME-accredited programs to be eligible to take their board certification examinations.<br />States require completion of an ACGME-accredited residency program for physician licensure <br />
