ASPS earns 'rare' accreditation status

Article-ASPS earns 'rare' accreditation status

Arlington Heights, Ill. — The American Society of Plastic Surgeons has earned the highest level of accreditation status — Accreditation with Commendation — from the Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education (ACCME).

The ACCME grants accreditation to the ASPS through March 2018, and recognizes the society as a leading provider of continuing medical education (CME) for the plastic surgery community.

“This is truly a testament to the quality of educational programs that we offer to our members,” said ASPS President Malcolm Z. Roth, M.D., in an ASPS statement. “Commendation is rare — fewer than 29 percent of the 690 ACCME-accredited CME providers have received this designation. It demonstrates that the ACCME has the highest confidence in the educational programming that ASPS offers and recognizes our efforts to collaborate with others in the CME community.”

The ACCME grants commendation to providers that demonstrate compliance with all 22 of its evaluation criteria and its accreditation policies.
