If you're seeking strategies for achieving exemplary compliance under the Accreditation Council for CME's new system, consider attending “Pursuing Excellence: Raising the Bar for Continuing Medical Education,” a conference hosted by Baylor College of Medicine, September 14 to 15 in Houston.

At the conference, exemplary CME providers — from both nonprofit and for-profit settings — will share approaches for measuring program outcomes based on the ACCME's new self-study model, and other techniques for achieving accreditation with honors.

“As one of the first providers to be reviewed under the new system, we would have welcomed the opportunity to study examples of innovation; however, the process was so new that even the ACCME could not yet provide examples. That has changed,” says Michael Fordis, MD, associate Dean for CME at Baylor.
