An ad hoc committee will plan and conduct a 2-day public workshop to explore global shifts in society, health, health care, and education, and their potential impact on general principles of program accreditation across the continuum of health professional education (foundational, graduate, and continuing professional development). The workshop will engage health professional educators, accreditors, and others to explore such topics as:

• Improving the efficiency and cost of accreditation (e.g., harmonization of competencies across professions, joint accreditation, etc.) 

• Engaging new partners in accreditation (e.g., individuals, communities, and populations) 

• The role of accreditation as an element in achieving quality health care delivery and quality health professions education

• Challenges and opportunities for accreditation (e.g., accrediting “non-traditional” educational models,  countries with no or inadequate accreditation systems) 

The committee will develop a workshop agenda, select and invite speakers and discussants, and moderate the discussions. Following the workshop, a summary of the event will be prepared by a designated rapporteur in accordance with institutional guidelines.

The workshop was free and open to the public. PowerPoint presentations and videos of the webcast recordings can be found in the links on the right side of this page.
