GME receives high marks from ACGME

For the fourth consecutive year, UNC has received a pristine accreditation with zero citations and zero areas for improvement.

UNC Hospitals, in association with UNC School of Medicine and the UNC Health Care System, sponsors more than 80 medical residency and fellowship training programs under the accreditation oversight of the Institutional Review Committee (IRC) of the Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education (ACGME).  Remaining fully accredited at the institutional level is a requirement for each individual training program to remain fully accredited as well.  UNC trainees must graduate from accredited programs in order to be eligible for Board Certification in their respective specialties, so maintaining full ACGME accreditation is vital to the success of an academic medical center. 

Each year UNC undergoes a rigorous institutional accreditation review by the ACGME, after which an annual accreditation decision is rendered. 

For the fourth consecutive year, UNC has received a pristine accreditation with zero citations and zero areas for improvement.

"This result comes from the tireless efforts, and the enthusiastic support, from many people across our amazing institution – my heartfelt thanks to our entire GME enterprise," said Clark Denniston, MD, Senior Associate Dean for Graduate Medical Education.
