The College of American Pathologists was resurveyed by the Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education (ACCME) and awarded Accreditation with Commendation for six years as a provider of continuing medical education (CME) for physicians. The prestigious designation means that the CAP has exceeded standards set for accreditation.
"Education is the cornerstone of CAP offerings," said CAP President Gene N. Herbek, MD, FCAP. "We are proud of the ACCME's recognition as a premier CME provider for pathology education to help equip pathologists for current and emerging roles in health care leading to better care for patients."
ACCME accreditation seeks to assure the medical community and the public that the CAP provides physicians with relevant, effective, practice-based continuing medical education that supports US health care quality improvement.
Accreditation with commendation is awarded to providers that demonstrate compliance with all criteria and accreditation policies. The CAP was specifically commended for demonstrating support of physician learning and change that is a part of a system for quality improvement. The re-accreditation marks the second consecutive cycle that the CAP has received the six-year accreditation term—the longest term that the ACCME offers.
