Continuing the ongoing series of in-person workshops dedicated to assisting Sponsoring Institutions and programs in preparing for the full implementation of Milestones 2.0, staff members from the Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education (ACGME) Milestones team and ACGME-I conducted their most recent workshop in Lebanon.
ACGME Vice President, Milestones Development Laura Edgar, EdD, CAE led the workshop with the team from the American University of Beirut (AUB). These workshops are designed for Milestones 2.0 specialists to collaborate and share detailed knowledge with local teams on how to implement and use the new Milestones, including program-specific considerations.
“Dr. Edgar and I had the honor to meet with the dedicated faculty and staff at AUB this week during a workshop on the ACGME-I Milestones and the ACGME-I Self-Study process,” said ACGME-I Executive Director Lorraine C. Lewis, EdD. “We are so grateful the family medicine faculty members and coordinators took time out of their very busy schedules to develop a Supplemental Guide which will help them implement the new Milestones and assess their residents’ progress in each of the ACGME-I Competencies.”
These in-person workshops will continue through the coming months to better prepare Sponsoring Institutions and programs for Milestones 2.0, as their use will be required beginning January 2024. Learn more about the Milestones. Future workshop dates and locations will be sent directly to the Sponsoring Institutions and included in ACGME-I’s monthly e-Communication newsletter.
AUB has been an ACGME-I-accredited Sponsoring Institution since 2014, and currently sponsors 18 ACGME-I-accredited graduate medical education programs.
