ACCME CEO Comments on JAMA Article

“ACCME Responds to JAMA Articles Slamming Medical Communication Companies,” by Sue Pelletier, published by MeetingsNet/medical, December 29, 2013, includes comments from Murray Kopelow, MD, ACCME President and CEO, about an article and accompanying editorial that appeared in the December 18 issue of the Journal of the American Medical Association"Medical Communication Companies and Industry Grants” and “Medical Communication Companies and Continuing Medical Education: Clouding the Sunshine” (subscription required for access). Dr. Kopelow says that the article “presents a misleading, inaccurate, and imbalanced picture of accredited continuing medical education and the stringent requirements in place to safeguard its independence.”
