ACGME Re-Accreditation

HSPH OEMR RECEIVES ANOTHER FULL FIVE -YEAR ACCREDITATION FROM ACGME

In August 2008, the Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education (ACGME) conducted a five-year site visit of the HSPH OEMR. In April 2009, we received notice from the ACGME’s Residency Review Committee for Preventive Medicine that we were awarded another full, 5-year cycle of re-accreditation. The Review Committee commended the HSPH program for “its demonstrated substantial compliance with the ACGME’s Requirements for Graduate Medical Education.” HSPH’s next site visit will be in 2014.

The ACGME is responsible for the accreditation of post-MD medical training programs within the United States. Accreditation is accomplished through a peer review process and is based upon national standards for graduate medical education established by ACGME, which approves and continually assesses educational programs under its aegis.
