Agreement on Accreditation System for Graduate Medical Education

February 27, 2014
 

The associations that represent allopathic and osteopathic medical schools announced Wednesday that they had agreed to a common system for accrediting U.S. providers of graduate medical education. The Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education, the American Osteopathic Association, and the American Association of Colleges of Osteopathic Medicine said that under the arrangement, the osteopathic associations would become members of the graduate medical education group, and that the joint accrediting system would allow "graduates of allopathic and osteopathic medical schools to complete their residency and/or fellowship education in ACGME-accredited programs and demonstrate achievement of common milestones and competencies."
