ACGME to Begin Testing New Accreditation System

The Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education will soon begin testing the site visit process for its new Clinical Learning Environment Review Process, the Council's new outcomes-based accreditation system, according to an AHA News Now report.

Beginning later this month, the ACGME will work closely with several institutions that have volunteered to test the process before it is implemented later this year.

ACGME announced the new accreditation system in February and plans to implement the program for seven specialties by July 2013, with plans to apply the accreditation system to all specialties by July 2014.

When the new system goes into effect, each accredited medical residency program must demonstrate its residents have the competencies in six core areas — patient care, medical knowledge, practice-based learning and improvement, systems-based practice, professionalism and interpersonal skills and communication — and the clinical skills to deliver quality patient care and respond to rapid developments in healthcare delivery.
