New Programs Accredited in Haiti and Qatar

During its early May meeting, the Review Committee-International approved the accreditation application of two new graduate medical education (GME) programs, one in Haiti and one in Qatar.

The emergency medicine residency program at Haiti’s Hôpital Universitaire de Mirebalais (HUM) achieved Initial Accreditation, becoming the third accredited GME program at the institution.

“Considering the challenging situation faced by the institution and the country, the accreditation of HUM’s emergency medicine program is truly a testament to their dedication to GME for the betterment of the people of Haiti,” said ACGME-I Associate Executive Director William Hart.

The pediatric hospital medicine fellowship program at Qatar’s Sidra Medicine also achieved Initial Accreditation. Sidra Medicine now has a total of 22 accredited programs, 21 of which are subspecialty fellowships.

“The growth of subspecialty education at Sidra demonstrates the institution’s commitment to advancing GME to the highest level, and we look forward to working with them as they continue to expand fellowship opportunities,” added Mr. Hart.

Accreditation for both programs is effective as of 1 July 2023.

ACGME-I currently accredits 202 programs in 24 Sponsoring Institutions in 12 countries.
