 UofL Professional Development Program Returns to Full Accreditation

The University of Louisville School of Medicine Continuing Medical Education and Professional Development program has been notified by its accrediting body, that it is in full compliance with all required standards and has been released from its probationary status.

The Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education (ACCME) is its accrediting body. "We modified our review process within the office to create redundancies to prevent inadvertent errors in oversight, like the one that led to our being placed on probation," said Dan Cogan, Ed.D., FAODME, assistant dean for continuing medical education and professional development. "Our previous process did not pick up on the single instance of an industry-employed individual providing instruction at a conference. That will not happen again."

As part of its probationary status, UofL was required to enact new policies and procedures to prevent activities that are outside of the ACCME standards, and to demonstrate that those changes are being followed and are successful. During its probationary status, UofL has offered about 90 educational programs to more than 15,000 health care providers nationwide.

The program's next periodic accreditation review will be in late 2017.
