Working group on continuing medical education

The IMS-WGCME's mission is the identification, development, and promotion of standards for quality continuing medical education (CME) utilized by physicians in their maintenance of competence and incorporation of new knowledge to improve quality medical care for patients and their communities.

The IMS-WGCME fulfills its mission through a voluntary self-regulated system for accrediting CME providers and a peer-review process responsive to changes in medical education and the health care delivery system.

The primary responsibilities of the IMS-WGCME are to:

  • Serve as the body accrediting institutions and organizations offering continuing medical education.
  • Serve as the body recognizing institutions and organizations offering continuing medical education accreditation.
  • Develop criteria for evaluation of both educational programs and their activities by which ACCME and state accrediting bodies will accredit institutions and organizations and be responsible for assuring compliance with these standards.
  • Develop, or foster the development of, methods for measuring the effectiveness of continuing medical education and its accreditation, particularly in its relationship to supporting quality  patient care and the continuum of medical education.
  • Recommend and initiate studies for improving the organization and processes of continuing medical education and its accreditation.
  • Review and assess developments in continuing medical education’s support of quality health.
  • Review periodically its role in continuing medical education to ensure it remains responsive to public and professional needs.
