The American University of Beirut Medical Center (AUBMC) recently announced it has received accreditation by the Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education – International (ACGME-I), becoming the fourth worldwide to be recognized.

AUBMC joins programs in Abu-Dhabi, Qatar and Singapore to be recognized by the ACGME-I, the international arm of the ACGME. Similar to ACGME accreditation, physicians in ACGME-I programs are assessed on their medical knowledge, clinical skills, interpersonal and communication skills, and professionalism. The accreditation began on July 1 and will remain effective for two years.

“This is a transformational achievement that solidifies the AUB Faculty of Medicine’s pioneering role in advancing medical education in the region and is the first accreditation of its kind in Lebanon,” said Dr. Kamal Badr, associate dean of medical education, in a written statement.
