New From ACCME: ACCME Academy

Policy and Medicine (06/01/2021) Sullivan, Thomas

The Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education (ACCME) has launched the ACCME Academy as "an educational home for the continuing education (CE) community." The Academy offers accredited ACCME providers free access to multimedia, interactive courses and resources to help improve their educational offerings. CE providers can avail themselves of courses and curricula to formulate and supply effective CE, advance faculty development and obtain Accreditation with Commendation. Users can also meet accreditation requirements, access the Program and Activity Reporting System and interact with doctors and patients to help plan and teach CE courses. Other Academy components include support tools to augment the professional development of providers' CE teams and a Community of Practice that lets participants learn from and with, colleagues. All accredited ACCME providers will receive three complimentary user accounts to employ through 2021 starting June 1 and can upgrade and participate in fee-based educational events with special ACCME Academy Content. A subscription model planned for 2022 will feature more options for enrolling staff and volunteers in the ACCME Academy.
