AAIM constituent organizations recognize the authority of two accrediting bodies:

  • Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education.  APDIM and ASP draw their members from ACGME-accredited internal medicine residencies and fellowships.
  • Liaison Committee on Medical Education.  APM, CDIM, and AIM members come from departments of internal medicine at LCME-accredited medical schools.


 Allopathic and Osteopathic Medical Communities Commit to a Single Graduate Medical Education Accreditation System

ACGME, the American Osteopathic Association (AOA), and the American Association of Colleges of Osteopathic Medicine (AACOM) have agreed to a single accreditation system for US GME programs. After months of discussion, the allopathic and osteopathic medical communities have committed to work together to prepare future generations of physicians with the highest quality GME, ultimately helping to ensure the quality and safety of health care delivery.

A call has been scheduled to provide an opportunity to hear comments about this decision from top ACGME, AOA and AACOM leaders in a single setting.

When: Thursday, February 27, 2014, at 9 a.m. EST/8 a.m. CST
Participant Access Instructions: Dial in 5-10 minutes prior to the start time using the number 888-576-4398; conference code 9288273.
