The Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education has awarded its highest accreditation level to the continuing medical education program at East Tennessee State University’s Quillen College of Medicine, according to a recent ETSU press release. 

As the accrediting body for continuing medical education, ACCME affirms that the Quillen College of Medicine has demonstrated a high-quality program, defined by the strength of its organizational resources and exceptional staff, in offering learning activities that enhance health-care provider knowledge, skills and performance in the context of lifelong learning.

This honor, “Accreditation with Commendation,” is awarded to CME programs that adhere to 15 primary criteria for regular accreditation, plus an additional seven for “Accreditation with Commendation.”

To receive commendation, ETSU CME collaborated with internal and external stakeholders to develop and implement educational programming and tools designed to promote improved clinical performance and health outcomes.

The CME program at the Quillen College was first accredited in 1981. This is the first year that Quillen has received “Accreditation with Commendation,” which is for a six-year term.
