Committee on CME Accreditation
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.
