Ohio AAP Awarded CME Accreditation with Commendation

The Child Health Pillar is pleased to announce that The Ohio State Medical Association (OSMA) Focused Task Force on Accreditation met last week and voted to award Continuing Medical Education (CME) accreditation with commendation (six years) to the Ohio AAP.

The Ohio AAP was initially awarded provisional accreditation for two years in 2015. The Ohio AAP was subject to a CME program evaluation by the Focused Task Force in November 2017 on twenty-two Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education (ACCME) criterion for compliance. The Ohio AAP program was found to be in exemplar compliance with the all criterion, therefore awarded six years of accreditation as opposed to the typical four years.

Only half of the CME providers in Ohio have accreditation with commendation. The Ohio AAP is grateful for all of our members who receive their CME through the Chapter for taking the extra step to complete our evaluation and impact studies following completion of an activity. One of our strengths is our proven changes in practice and physician competence as a result of our education.

The Ohio AAP will continue to build CME and MOC Part II activities on our Pediatric Education Center, as educating our members is always top of mind.

If you have any questions about our education or CME, please contact Elizabeth Dawson at edawson@ohioaap.org or 614-846-6258.
