Upholding Excellence in Medical Education
The Accreditation Commission on Colleges of Medicine
The Accreditation Commission on Colleges of Medicine is an independent, not for profit organisation based in the Republic of Ireland. ACCM is invited by Governments of countries that may not have a national medical accreditation body, to act on their behalf in relation to the accreditation of specified medical education programmes within their jurisdiction.
The ACCM is a medical accreditation body with members (Commissioners) who are senior medical educators plus a lay member representing the public. They see their work as a contribution to the global effort to ensure quality medical education. The Commission is independent of the countries it serves and of the education programmes it inspects and accredits.
