UVM College of Medicine Continuing Medical Education Receives Accreditation with Commendation
- By Carole L. Whitaker
The Continuing Medical Education (CME) program at the University of Vermont College of Medicine and Fletcher Allen Health Care has been reaccredited with “Accreditation with Commendation,” the highest accreditation awarded by the Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education (ACCME).
Accreditation with Commendation is only awarded to those institutions that have demonstrated compliance to all of ACCME’s criteria. Fewer than 20 percent of institutions accredited by the ACCME achieve this level.
The CME Office, which launched in 1965, is led by Associate Dean Cheung Wong, M.D., associate professor of obstetrics, gynecology and reproductive sciences, and Director Terry Caron. Wong credits the support of senior leadership, technology services, the faculty of the College and the CME staff for making the Accreditation with Commendation possible.
CME offers 20 conferences annually and supports a weekly Grand Rounds schedule for 16 specialties at UVM/Fletcher Allen. Learn more.
