Shelly D. Timmons, MD, PhD, chair of the Department of Neurological Surgery, has been appointed to the Neurological Surgery Review Committee of the Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education (ACGME). The ACGME accredits all residency and fellowship programs in the United States and dedicates resources to address areas of importance in graduate medical education.

Timmons was nominated by the American College of Surgeons and chosen from a highly selected group of national leaders with expertise in education and post-graduate training. The ACGME also employs best practices, research and advancements across the continuum of medical education to enhance health care and graduate medical education.

Timmons will join six neurosurgeon colleagues, a resident member and a public member on the Neurological Surgery Review Committee in July 2021 for a six-year term. The group accredits the country’s neurosurgical training programs and provides insight to issues affecting training to the ACGME at large.
