The Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education (AGCME) is a private, nonprofit council that evaluates and accredits medical residency programs in the United States.

The ACGME was established in 1981 from a consensus in the academic medical community for an independent accrediting organization. Its forerunner was the Liaison Committee for Graduate Medical Education, established in 1972. The mission of the ACGME is to improve health care by assessing and advancing the quality of resident physicians’ education through exemplary accreditation.
