About Education from the ACGME

Designed to enhance learning and improve GME, the clinical learning environment, and patient care.

The Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education (ACGME) is an independent, not-for-profit organization in the U.S. that sets and monitors voluntary professional educational standards essential in preparing physicians to deliver safe, high-quality medical care. Its mission is to improve health care and population health by assessing and enhancing the quality of resident and fellow physicians’ education through advancements in accreditation and education.

Graduate medical education (GME) refers to the period of education in a particular specialty (residency) or subspecialty (fellowship) following medical school. The ACGME oversees the accreditation of residency and fellowship programs in the U.S.

The ACGME educational activities shared via the AMA Ed Hub are designed to enhance learning and improve GME, the clinical learning environment, and patient care. Learners can access the self-directed ACGME Equity Matters™ content—educational resources for continuous learning and process improvement in the areas of diversity, equity, and inclusion and antiracism practices. ACGME Equity Matters aims to drive change within GME by increasing physician workforce diversity and building safe and inclusive learning environments, while promoting health equity by addressing racial disparities in health care and population health.

To complete these educational activities and modules, learners will need to set up a free account on the ACGME’s online learning portal, Learn at ACGME.
