Medicine Programs Earn ACGME Continued Accreditation

Every Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education (ACGME) program in the Department of Medicine (DOM) has earned continued accreditation without any citations or areas for improvement.

The department has many GME training programs, 20 of which are ACGME-accredited programs that undergo annual ACGME review.

“This is a huge accomplishment for the Department,” said Lisa Criscione-Schreiber, MD, MEd, vice chair for education. “We are fortunate to have so many dedicated program directors, associate program directors, and program coordinators who work tirelessly to support training the nearly 330 trainees across Duke DOM programs.”

“What a remarkable achievement for the department and for our program directors, associate program directors and program coordinators,” said Department of Medicine Chair Kathleen Cooney, MD. “We are grateful for each of these individuals for their hard work and unwavering dedication to our education mission. Please join us in thanking them for a job well done.”
