Advisory Board

The purpose of the Continuing Medical Education (CME) Committee is to provide insight and guidance on the strategic direction of USA's Office of CME. Members from multiple disciplines and positions within the healthcare system serve as representatives and liaisons for their departments, and community programs, advocates for CME and final arbiters in disputes on regulatory requirements.

Members include physicians, physician assistants, nurses, social workers, and other allied health professionals involved in CME and leadership from compliance, hospital, and health-system units. Members serve a three-year term, allowing new faces and new ideas to contribute to the board. The board meets quarterly to discuss upcoming events, criteria, standards, mission statement, and how best to meet each.
