ASNC Achieves Accreditation with Commendation Highest Recognition from ACCME
ASNC has received the highest level of recognition, Accreditation with Commendation, from the Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education (ACCME).
Accreditation with Commendation is awarded to CME providers that demonstrate compliance in all aspects of accreditation requirements and for demonstrating exemplary engagement with the environment in support of physician learning and physician quality improvement.
ACCME employs a rigorous process for evaluating institutions' CME programs based on standards that reflect the values of the educator community and aim to accelerate learning, inspire change and champion healthcare improvement. Through participation in accredited CME, clinicians and teams drive improvement in practice and optimize the care, health, and wellness of patients.
ACCME accreditation also assures the medical community and the public that ASNC delivers education that is relevant to clinicians' needs, evidence-based, evaluated for effectiveness and independent of commercial influence.
To receive this recognition, ASNC demonstrated compliance with all 22 of ACCME's accreditation criteria through a system of reporting for each and all of its 35 to 45 CME activities hosted each year, including live programs, enduring materials, journal CME, manuscript CME review and online learning reaching an average of more than 6,000 physicians annually.
ASNC celebrates this recognition of achievement and thanks its leaders, Education Committee members and Chair Donna Polk, MD, MPH, FASNC, program directors, Journal of Nuclear Cardiology CME editor and editor in chief, and staff for ensuring excellence in the Society's educational initiatives.
