Criterion 25: Students of the health professions are engaged in the planning and delivery of CME.

Published Date

Overview of Criterion 25 from the ACCME Menu of Criteria for Accreditation with Commendation by Graham McMahon, MD, MMSc, ACCME President and CEO.


>>McMAHON: Health profession students are the future of each of our professions, of course, and they're very astute informants to us, to help us anticipate the changing needs of the next generation of learners, but it's not just about them providing relevance and meaning, informant recommendations, and a planning process for an accredited CME provider, but it's about also helping those students become familiar with and anticipate the CME system that awaits them. This criteria rewards accredited providers who build those bridges across the healthcare education continuum, and rewards those for creating an environment that encourages and nurtures health profession students, and practicing healthcare professionals to work together to fulfill their commitment to lifelong learning.
