ACGME-International EM Residency Program Accreditation
I am curious about the state of emergency medicine internationally with regard to ACGME accreditation. A few years ago, ACGME began accrediting emergency medicine residency programs outside the US under its affiliate group ACGME-International ( http://www.acgme-i.org/web/index.html ). As of today, the only accredited programs are in Singapore.
Are any other emergency medicine residency programs outside the US planning to pursue ACGME-International accreditation? Despite the many complexities, it seems that broader ACGME accreditation could help to unify the specialty's standards.
