The Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education is accepting proposals to participate in an initiative launched with AHA and others to transform clinical training for residents and physicians who pursue formal specialty and subspecialty training at ACGME-accredited institutions. Hospital and health system CEOs and board members who participate in the leadership track will collaborate with each other and their clinical teams to develop and test new strategic practices to optimize the role of GME in a system-based approach to improving patient care.
