Certified CME Discussed at U.S. Senate Hearing
The U.S. Senate Special Committee on Aging held a hearing on July 29, 2009, in Washington DC titled "Medical Research and Education: Higher Learning or Higher Earning". The meeting focused on Continuing Medical Education (CME). Staff members and the Chief Investigator for Committee Chair US Sen. Herb Kohl (D-Wisc) have had several discussions with NAAMECC, and NAAMECC is diligently working to educate them about the big differences between Certified CME and other forms of "education."
At the request of Kohl's staff, the NAAMECC Board compiled comments to inform the Committee members about Certified CME. We have obtained this information and are sharing it with our subscribers. Please feel free to review and distribute these comments to members of your education networks. We need to continue to educate those within and outside the CME enterprise regarding the value and definition of Certified CME.
