Musee selected to serve on the ACGME Review Committee for Anesthesiology

Musee_JoelJoel Musee, M.D., Ph.D., a second-year resident in Vanderbilt’s Department of Anesthesiology, has been selected from a national pool of applicants to serve on the Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education (ACGME) Review Committee for Anesthesiology.

The ACGME is a private, non-profit organization that accredits more than 9,000 medical residency and fellowship programs in 133 specialties and subspecialties. The Review Committee for Anesthesiology sets the accreditation standards and provides peer evaluation of anesthesiology programs or institutions to determine their compliance with educational standards. It also confers an accreditation status for programs and institutions meeting those standards.

The evaluation of residents is changing dramatically due to the implementation of the ACGME’s Next Accreditation System (NAS). These requirements, which go into effect for Anesthesiology residents in July, are designed to closely track learning “milestones,” or competency-based performance areas.
