The 2016 conference, in addition to showcasing many of the current ACGME initiatives—such as the full implementation of the Next Accreditation System (NAS), the Milestones, the Clinical Learning Environment Review (CLER) Program, and the ACGME self-study program—will offer dedicated sessions based upon quality improvement and patient safety, the latest on competency-based medical education assessment, and a report on the ACGME’s efforts to improve resident and practicing physician well-being.
As in previous years, we will continue to offer specialty-specific sessions, including one new osteopathic specialty and an update on osteopathic recognition, sessions on the Accreditation Data System (ADS), and our specialty Town Halls. To allow for topics of special interest, we have brought back Sunset Sessions, which are included on the agenda for Thursday and Friday evenings.
