ORGANIZATIONS SUPPORTING GME

Association of American Medical Colleges (AAMC)
Through its many programs and services, the AAMC strengthens the world's most advanced medical care by supporting the entire spectrum of education, research, and patient care activities conducted by our member institutions. The AAMC and their members are dedicated to the communities they serve and steadfast in their desire to earn and keep the public's trust for the role they play in improving the nation's health.
 
AAMC Integrating Quality (IQ) Initiative
The AAMC Integrating Quality (IQ) initiative assists teaching hospitals and medical schools in enhancing this culture of quality in their organizations and in working to achieve these six aims by providing a series of resources and activities focused on building coordinated approaches to quality, patient safety and performance improvement across academic medical centers.
 
Academy for Healthcare Improvement (AHI)
The mission of AHI is to foster an interprofessional community that advances quality improvement in health care through scholarly and educational activities.
 
Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education (ACGME)
The Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education (ACGME) is a private professional organization responsible for the accreditation of about 9,500 residency education programs. The ACGME's volume of accredited programs makes it one of the largest private accrediting agencies in the country, if not the world. The ACGME accredits residency programs in 140 specialty and subspecialty areas of medicine, including all programs leading to primary Board certification by the 24 member boards of the American Board of Medical Specialties.
 
Alliance of Independent Academic Medical Centers (AIAMC)
The Alliance of Independent Academic Medical Centers (AIAMC) is a national membership organization whose members are major academic medical centers and health systems committed to quality patient care, medical education and research. The mission of the AIAMC is to assist members in achieving the highest standards of patient care through the integration of medical education and research into their clinical missions.
 
American Board of Internal Medicine (ABIM) Practice Improvement Modules
Practice Improvement Modules (PIMs) for training programs allow for convenient and easy documentation of program activity in all of the ACGME general competencies. PIMs are particularly useful in documenting activity in practice-based learning and improvement and systems-based practice.
 
The American Medical Association – Graduate Medical Education Focus
The American Medical Association (AMA) is committed to ensuring that physicians-in-training are successful as they advance through their education cycle. In doing so, it offers the most complete, up-to-date information regarding graduate medical education (GME) for medical students and residents as well as educators, academic physicians, and residency/fellowship program directors.
 
Quality and Safety Educators Academy (QSEA)
The demand for training in healthcare quality and patient safety for both medical students and residents has never been higher. The Quality and Safety Educators Academy responds to that demand by providing medical educators with the knowledge and tools to integrate quality improvement and safety concepts into their curricula. The Quality and Safety Educators Academy is a 2-½ day academy designed as a faculty development program and sponsored by the Society of Hospital Medicine (SHM) and the Alliance for Academic Internal Medicine (AAIM).
 
Quality and Safety Education for Nurses (QSEN)
The Quality and Safety Education for Nurses (QSEN) project addresses the challenge of preparing future nurses so that they will have the knowledge, skills, and attitudes (KSAs) necessary to continuously improve the quality and safety of the healthcare systems within which they work. This website is a central repository of information on the core QSEN competencies, KSAs, teaching strategies, and faculty development resources designed to best support this goal.
