The American Hospital Association is pleased to partner with the Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education (ACGME) on the Pursuing Excellence in Clinical Learning Environments project.

Launched today, this four-year initiative is designed to promote transformative improvement within the clinical learning environments of ACGME-accredited Sponsoring Institutions where resident and fellow physicians pursue formal clinical training in a specialty or subspecialty.

As part of this program, ACGME will provide funding through grants up to $75,000 per year over four years to up to eight Sponsoring Institutions.

ACGME’s focus on pursuing excellence in the clinical learning environment will assist hospitals and health systems in becoming true learning organizations, improving clinical care and patient outcomes, while at the same time developing the next generation of clinicians and health care leaders.

For more information about the program, visit the ACGME website
