    what si ACGME? Does SJSM accredited by ACGME?


    I am somewhat lost with all these accreditations by different organization.
    I know that you are required? to take 1 year of graduate program from ACGME?
    Does that mean after finishing 4yrs of SJSM Program(USMLE 1&2) i need to take another
    1year of ACGME course in order to take USMLE3? Which admits to the residency year?
    I might be completely wrong, so please feel free to correct me.
    IM LOST.
    Thank You.

    " The Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education (ACGME) is responsible for the Accreditation of post-MD medical training programs within the United States."

    SJSM is a medical school that awards the MD degree. ACGME is a non-profit entity that evaluates and accredits post-MD residency programs.

    Their website explains this in more detail, if you are still stuck: http://www.acme.org
