Baldwin Seminar Series

The Baldwin Seminar Series features lectures on topics relevant to graduate medical education throughout the academic year, held at the ACGME offices in Chicago. The ACGME’s Office of Continuing Medical Education provides continuing professional development for physician-educators (CME), ACGME staff members, and other GME professionals for participation in these sessions. While the live presentations are open to ACGME staff members, as well as program directors, faculty members, executive directors, and GME educators from local institutions and organizations, the ACGME now also livestreams the sessions and makes on-demand recordings of them available online for one month. Registration for each livestream will be available before the presentation. The Baldwin Seminar Series is free of charge, both for those who attend in person or online.
