The Continuing Medical Education program at the Indiana University School of Medicine received a commendation for excellence and the rare distinction of being accredited for a six-year period by the Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education.
ACCME is the national organization responsible for reviewing and accrediting organizations that provide continuing medical education to physicians. In its November letter extending accreditation through 2017, ACCME noted that the six-year period is the highest accreditation given.
In awarding its commendation and extended accreditation term, ACCME cited the medical school’s success in deeply and thoroughly engaging today’s complex health care environment to produce innovative continuing medical education offerings. In addition to excellence in educational design, ACCME cited IU School of Medicine’s excellence in addressing barriers physicians sometimes encounter when improving clinical practice.
Alexander M. Djuricich, M.D., is associate dean for Continuing Medical Education and Hassan Danesh, Ph.D., is director of the Continuing Medical Education at the IU School of Medicine.
