ACCME News Release (08/14/18)
A new collaboration between the Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education (ACCME) and the American Board of Otolaryngology — Head and Neck Surgery (ABOHNS) aims to increase the opportunities for ABOHNS board-certified physicians to receive Maintenance of Certification (MOC) credits by participating in accredited continuing medical education (CME). Under the alliance, the two groups will work to expand the number and diversity of accredited CME activities that fulfill the requirements for ABOHNS MOC. Another goal is to make the process simpler and more unified for accredited CME providers and ABOHNS board-certified physicians.
“We celebrate our collaboration because it will generate more opportunities for our community of educators to deliver relevant, effective, independent, practice-based education that counts for ABOHNS MOC,” says Graham McMahon, MD, MMSc, president and CEO, ACCME. “By working together, ABOHNS, accredited CME providers, and ABOHNS board-certified physicians can leverage the power of education to drive quality in our medical profession and improve care for the patients we all serve.”
