The Iowa Medical Society has a variety of organized committees that meet throughout the year to discuss topics that are vital to healthcare in our state. Many of our committee meetings are open to all members to join, either to participate in or simply to observe and learn more about! If you are interested in joining an IMS committee, please contact us. 

The Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education (ACCME) recognizes the Iowa Medical Society (IMS) as an accreditor of intrastate continuing medical education (CME) providers. The Committee on CME Accreditation oversees IMS' accreditation program. Its purpose is to assure ready access to high-quality medical educational experiences in order to raise the standards of medical care for Iowans, enhance professional development of Iowa physicians and facilitate compliance with Iowa relicensing requirements. This purpose is achieved through periodic surveys leading to reaccreditation of currently accredited CME providers, and surveys of new provider applicants.

Committee meetings: One meeting each winter (approx. three hours)


“I give most of the credit for my love of CME to my mentor in the accreditation world, Dr. Doug Dorner. He opened my eyes to the endless possibilities CME offers for making better physicians. By the nature of our business, we’re life-long learners and we seek out information when we see opportunities to improve our care of patients. CME provides us with a vehicle that maximizes the effectiveness of those searches. Accredited CME is as close as we can get to guaranteeing we will learn from the information we’ve ingested.”
