Call for Abstracts on Single GME Accreditation System

August 29, 2016
2017 Conference logoThe Joint AACOM & AODME 2017 Annual Conference, April 26-29, is now accepting abstracts under the theme Educating Leaders for Integrated Health Systems. Within the context of a rapidly changing health care environment, graduate medical education (GME) is also undergoing an evolution spurred by the single GME accreditation system (SAS).

Individuals interested or involved in the SAS transition are strongly encouraged to submit abstracts to this year's program. Similarly, those with experience in both AOA and ACGME accreditation systems (such as dually-accredited programs) are also urged to submit abstracts.

SAS-focused submissions are sought to contribute unique insights and experiences into this timely and pervasive topic with the goal of sparking valuable ideas, questions, peer-to-peer learning, and dialogue.

Suggested SAS-focused subtopics include (but are not limited to):

  • Institutional Accreditation
  • Program Evaluations
  • Scholarly Activity
  • Clinical Learning Environment Review (CLER)
  • Osteopathic Recognition

Looking to showcase your scholarly work or earn CME?

The Joint AACOM & AODME 2017 Annual Conference is a great opportunity for program faculty and others to showcase their scholarly work and/or earn continuing medical education (CME) credits.

Why present with us?

Research presented at an academic, peer-reviewed national conference gives presenters a unique opportunity to explore research topics in great depth/vet ideas with an academic audience.

Volunteer, or Submit an Abstract or Meeting Request
Deadline: September 21, 2016

SAS is just one of many important abstract topic areas to choose from this year. Abstracts on non-SAS topics, as well as volunteer submissions and meeting requests, are all vital elements of this year's conference program and are also being accepted at this time.
