Member Organizations

The ACCME’s seven member organizations, representing the profession of medicine, were the founders of the ACCME. They are responsible for nominating individuals to the Board of Directors, for providing input into ACCME’s strategic directions, and for oversight of ACCME actions and bylaws changes.

The ACCME’s seven member and founding organizations are the American Board of Medical Specialties, the American Hospital Association, the American Medical Association, the Association of American Medical Colleges, the Association for Hospital Medical Education, the Council of Medical Specialty Societies, and the Federation of State Medical Boards of the United States

The ACCME collaborates with its member organizations in a number of ways. During a special session at the ACCME Board of Directors meetings, member organization liaisons speak to the Board about high-level, timely issues, in keeping with their special role as the ACCME’s founding and member organizations.

ACCME executive staff members make presentations at member organizations’ meetings and participate in their committees and task forces. Through joint leadership initiatives, the ACCME and member organizations identify and implement strategies for improving physicians’ continuing professional development and patient care.
