SOM CME Accredited
April 21, 2009
The Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education (ACCME) granted the University of New Mexico School of MedicineAccreditation with Commendation. Only five medical school continuing-education providers in the U.S. received the special designation. Ninety-seven providers have been reviewed under the 2006 ACCME Accreditation Criteria. The University of New Mexico has a long-standing commitment to the full continuum of medical education. An important mission of the School of Medicine is to improve and enhance health for the diverse populations of New Mexico through education. Key to achieving this accreditation recognition has been the partnership efforts with the Department of Health, the Indian Health Service, Envision New Mexico, Rios Net and Project ECHO. Since 2006, the ACCME has maintained a focus on supporting a well-organized transition to a 22-criterion-based system for the accreditation of CME providers that matches the gaps in physician competence, performance, and patient outcomes (i.e., professional practice gaps) with practice-based learning and change. The accreditation period extends to March 2015.
