Accreditation at International Congress on Academic Medicine (ICAM) 2024

Saturday, April 13, 2024, Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada

Accreditation, locally and globally, is experiencing profound changes. Medical school accreditation in Canada has been presented with a unique pivotal point since its separation in 2021 from the American accreditation body, the Liaison Committee in Medical Education (LCME), expected to be fully implemented by 2025. At an international level, the World Federation for Medical Education (WFME) recognition program and its relationship to the Educational Commission for Foreign Medical Graduates (ECFMG) certificate (to be implemented by 2023) could change the dynamic of the global healthcare workforce. Given the critical role that Accreditation has in the quality of future healthcare force, it is paramount to discuss a potential research agenda that could inform accreditation changes and understand their potential impacts generating evidence that will help drive these processes moving forward.

ICAM  2024 in Vancouver will provide an opportunity to bring together scholars in accreditation and conference attendees with an interest in accreditation to further this dialogue.  ICAM will be offering accreditation as a stream for abstract submission for ICAM 2024.

We are hoping to see ICAM attendees with interest in accreditation locally and globally at ICAM 2024.
