As a Continuing Medical Education provider, The Commonwealth Medical College has obtained full accreditation from the Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education. TCMC’s CME accreditation status to offer AMA PRA Category 1 Credit was upgraded from provisional accreditation based on a review of the CME self study report, evidence of performance-in-practice activities and an accreditation interview in February 2013.
TCMC is one of approximately 700 ACCME accredited organizations nationwide that provide continuing medical education for physicians and healthcare professionals. Participation in CME provides ongoing educational support that helps clinicians improve their practice and care for patients throughout their professional careers. Accredited CME addresses every medical specialty, covering a range of topics important to health care improvement. CME also helps physicians meet requirements for maintenance of licensure, maintenance of special board certification, credentialing, membership in professional societies and other professional privileges.
ACCME is a nonprofit organization whose mission is to identify, develop and promote rigorous standards for quality CME that improves physician performance and medical care for patients and their communities.
The four year full accreditation term from the ACCME will expire July 31, 2017.
