American College Of Surgeons - Inspiring Quality: Highest Standards, Better Outcomes

AEI Accreditation Review Committee

The Accreditation Review Committee (ARC) consists of Fellows of the American College of Surgeons (ACS) who have expertise in various aspects of simulation-based surgical education and training. In addition, many direct their own centers.


The ARC makes its decisions and evaluations based on data gathered by surveyors during a site visit of the Accredited Education Institute (AEI). This information determines the level of compliance a participating AEI achieves for each criterion of the accreditation standards.
