Graduate Medical Education incorporated
The Journal of Graduate Medical Education (JGME) is the peer-reviewed journal of the Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education. The Journal disseminates scholarship and promotes critical inquiry to inform and engage the graduate medical education community to improve the quality of graduate medical education. The Journal is editorially independent.
The Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education (ACGME) is a private, not-for-profit, separately incorporated non-governmental organization responsible for the accreditation of graduate medical education (GME) programs and sponsoring institutions in the United States of America, its territories, and possessions. The ACGME's mission is to improve health care by assessing and advancing the quality of resident physicians' education through accreditation.
The journal is devoted to original research, educational innovations, review articles, and commentaries about graduate medical education and related matters relevant to the education of residents and fellows and to the settings in which such education occurs. The Journal also publishes perspectives, brief reports, letters to the editor, personal essays on teaching, and invited guest editorials.
Each issue has a limited number of pages with important updates from the ACGME and its review committees. This section is clearly distinguished from the peer-reviewed sections.
Statements or opinions expressed in the Journal of Graduate Medical Education reflect the views of the author(s) and do not necessarily reflect the official policy of the Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education unless this is clearly specified.
