CME Earns Accreditation with Commendation

Cedars-Sinai's Continuing Medical Education (CME) program was awarded Accreditation with Commendation in December, making it one of a small number of such programs in the U.S. to achieve this designation in three consecutive surveys.

The Accreditation with Commendation was given to Cedars-Sinai by the Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education (ACCME), which is the accreditation body for CME courses. Accreditation with Commendation is a six-year accreditation.

"We are very grateful for the leadership provided to us by Dr. Shlomo Melmed, Dr. Mark Noah and Richard Katzman throughout the process, as well as for their actual participation in the survey," said Ellen W. Green, MS, director of Medical Education. "Additional recognition should be noted for our CME course and series directors, departmental CME agents, and members of our Medical Staff CME Committee. A special acknowledgement goes to Marta Betancourt, OdetTer-Martirosyan and Bernadette Moleta from the CME Office. Their work on our program and the accreditation application was invaluable."
