ARMC Cardiology Fellowship Receives ACGME Accreditation

ARMC has earned its initial accreditation for its Cardiology Fellowship program for Graduate Medical Education.

Colton, CA — Arrowhead Regional Medical Center (ARMC) has been recognized by the Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education’s (ACGME) Next Accreditation System and its Review Committee for Internal Medicine. The accreditation took effect starting April 21, 2023, with ARMC being accredited to train two fellows a year for a total of six fellows for the three-year cardiology fellowship program.

“This is a fantastic step for the future of our hospital and our next generation of health care leaders,” said William Gilbert, ARMC’s Hospital Director. “We believe in fostering an environment of learning and innovation at ARMC, and we’re always looking to create additional opportunities through our educational programs.”

ARMC has offered graduate medical education for over seven decades through its fellowship and residency programs, with established curricula meant to ensure that all residents and fellows are prepared to face today’s challenges in health care at the physical, psychological, and sociological levels. In addition to the Cardiology fellowship, ARMC operates three additional fellowship programs and eight residency programs.

ACGME is a private, not-for-profit organization that regulates graduate medical education (residency and fellowship) programs and the institutions that sponsor them throughout the United States. ACGME makes accreditation decisions based on compliance with their set standards throughout a voluntary process of evaluation and review, with all accreditations overseen by Review Committees comprised of volunteer specialty experts from the field. Accreditation signifies that a program and its sponsoring institution meet the quality standards of the specialty or subspecialty practice for which it prepares its graduates. In addition to accrediting fellowships and granting recognition of additional program components, ACGME also dedicates resources to initiatives addressing areas of importance in graduate medical education in order to enhance health care to ultimately improve the patient care provided by resident and fellow physicians.
