Project Example

ACGME Global Services was retained by an international government health care agency to evaluate and make recommendations regarding postgraduate health education.

The project included two streams. The first was a review of the current national PGME program, including an assessment and gap analysis, followed by a roadmap with recommendations to correct identified gaps. The second was assessments and gap analyses of proposed new training centers and existing programs that did not meet current requirements, followed by roadmaps to correct identified gaps.

"Building a modern, accountable health care infrastructure is essential to providing better health care outcomes and safety for people around the world. Postgraduate medical education is an important part of that infrastructure. Through PGME, physicians form their identity as specialists, learning not only the skills of the specialty they have chosen, but also understanding who they must become to manage the stress and expectations they will encounter in a life of service to their patients."
