Upstate earns Continuing Medical Education accreditation

SYRACUSE, N.Y.— Upstate Medical University continues to excel at its mission to educate physicians long after graduation day. The Continuing Medical Education (CME) program at Upstate provides opportunities for physicians to maintain their expertise as well as incorporate new knowledge to elevate the level of patient care.

The Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education (ACCME) awarded Upstate Medical University’s CME Program accreditation with commendation for six years, through November 2019, as a provider of continuing medical education for physicians. This accreditation seeks to assure the public that Upstate provides physicians with the most relevant, effective, practice-based content that supports health care quality improvement across the United States.

“The receipt of Accreditation with Commendation from the ACCME was the culmination of 18 months of effort on the part of our office,” said Paul Grover, PhD, Upstate’s associate dean of Continuing Medical Education.

“We believe it accurately reflects the quality of our CME programing as well as the dedication and clinical expertise of our faculty.”

Activities sponsored by the Upstate CME program conform to the ACCME essential areas and elements, with the intent to enhance physician knowledge and lead to more positive patient outcomes. The CME program analyzes needs assessment data and actively seeks out programming that fills identified practice gaps. This process allows the program to deliver the exact content that physicians need to provide the best, most up-to-date care possible.

More than 20 million health care providers participate in ACCME-accredited CME programming annually in the United States. The program at Upstate has been accredited since 1978, first by the Liaison Committee on Continuing Medical Education and then by its successor, the ACCME.
