Position Type

The Board of Directors of the Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education-International seeks a President & CEO to succeed Dr. Susan Day following her successful tenure as inaugural CEO.

ACGME created ACGME-I in 2009 after petitioning by governments and medical institutions abroad to extend ACGME’s accreditation model internationally. A successful pilot project in Singapore has led to contracts for accreditation services in Guatemala, Haiti, Kenya, Lebanon, Oman, Pakistan, the People’s Republic of China, Qatar, Saudi Arabia, Singapore, and the United Arab Emirates. In 2020, ACGME-International, Inc., was established as a separate 501c3 organization with an independent board of directors chaired by Dr. Thomas J. Nasca, President & CEO of ACGME.

The new President & CEO of ACGME-I will develop and implement with the new Board an inspiring vision and dynamic strategy to further grow ACGME-I and fulfill its mission to improve health care by assessing and advancing the quality of resident physicians’ education through accreditation. Fundamentally, ACGME-I seeks to improve global health by ensuring that physicians who care for individuals are well-prepared in all aspects required of their chosen specialty. To achieve that goal, the President & CEO will emphasize customer service, tailoring accreditation services and training to the unique needs and circumstances of individual institutions, countries, and cultures.

Candidates must be physicians who have a demonstrated commitment to lifelong learning. The ideal candidate will have a reputation as a respected physician and academic medical leader in the United States and globally, with specific experience in medical training program accreditation and peer review as well as health care delivery and education internationally. The successful candidate will also be a strong relationship builder and team player, who combines intelligence and self-confidence with humility and flexibility. They will have a passion for medical education and quality, highly developed cultural sensitivity and listening skills, and an engaging personality with the ability to speak both articulately and persuasively.

ACGME-I has retained Park Square Executive Search to assist them in this important search. Nominations and applications should be directed to Richard von Rueden, MD, Jonathan Fortescue, and Kyle Meingast at:
