About Us

ACCM is a medical accreditation body whose members (Commissioners) are senior medical educators, together with a lay member representing the public. They see their work as a contribution to the global effort to ensure quality medical education. ACCM serves countries which may not have a medical accreditation body of their own.

The Commission is independent of the countries it serves and of the schools it inspects and evaluates.

Chairperson: Dr. Hilary Sanfey
Vice-Chairperson: Prof. Brian Lawlor
