The Accreditation Criteria are divided into three levels. To achieve Provisional Accreditation, a two year term, providers must comply with Criteria 1, 2, 3, and 7–12. Providers seeking full Accreditation or reaccreditation for a four-year term must comply with Criteria 1–13. To achieve Accreditation with Commendation, a six-year term, providers must comply with all Accreditation Criteria.
The provider has a CME mission statement that includes expected results articulated in terms of changes in competence, performance, or patient outcomes that will be the result of the program.
