Review Committees-International Reorganized

The 20-23 July 2016 Review Committee-International meeting marked a turning point for ACGME International. The changes described below are a consequence of the growth of the number of programs, the desire to increase the representation of international members on the Committee, and the desire to expand the specialties represented on the Committee to provide "content expertise" in more areas.

The first change is the addition of a second Review Committee, with division by specialties. One committee will review programs in the medicine-related specialties, including family medicine, internal medicine and internal medicine subspecialties, neurology, pediatrics and psychiatry. The Surgical/Hospital-Based Program Review Committee will review programs in the surgical and hospital-based specialties, including anesthesiology, emergency medicine, general surgery, obstetrics and gynecology, ophthalmology, orthopedic surgery and radiology.

The new reviewers, who bring a wealth of expertise across a broad range of specialties, were selected from medical education leadership of ACGME-I-accredited programs. An additional group of new members includes past leaders in ACGME accreditation in the U.S. For 2016, all new members will be paired with current members for program and Sponsoring Institution reviews to ensure that the quality of the accreditation process is maintained at the highest standard possible.
