The Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education today launched an initiative in partnership with the AHA and others to transform clinical training for residents and physicians who pursue formal specialty and subspecialty training at ACGME-accredited institutions. As part of the program, ACGME will provide up to $75,000 a year for 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,” wrote AHA Chief Medical Officer John Combes, M.D., in an AHASTAT blog post.
