Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education

The ACGME is a private, not for profit organization that sets standards for US graduate medical education (residency and fellowship) programs and institutions that sponsors them, and renders accreditation decisions based on compliance with these standards. 

ACGME accreditation provides assurance that a Sponsoring Institution or program meets the quality standards (Institutional and Program Requirements) of the specialty or subspecialty practice(s) for which it prepares its graduates.  ACGME accreditation is overseen by a Review Committee made up of volunteer specialty experts from the field that set accreditation standards and provide peer evaluation of Sponsoring Institutions and special and subspecialty residency and fellowship programs.
