MMH Continuing Medical Education Program Helps Doctors Be Their Best

Dec 03, 2019 10:08AM ● By Beacon Senior News

The Colorado Medical Society Committee on Professional Education and Accreditation recently awarded its highest accreditation level to the Continuing Medical Education (CME) program at Montrose Memorial Hospital.

This honor, “Accreditation with Commendation,” is awarded to CME programs that adhere to all 22 CME criteria of the Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education with an emphasis on addressing community health issues. To receive commendation, Montrose Memorial Hospital (MMH) had to demonstrate using CME as a tool to improve quality performance and health outcomes—utilizing provider’s insights and community input to address important issues, therefore improving quality of care. In addition to meeting the educational needs of providers, the CME committee works with area agencies to develop educational opportunities to address community health concerns.

MMH is one of only a few hospitals in the state that require physicians to complete CME as part of their medical staff membership.
