Broward Health’s Continuing Medical Education Program Awarded “Accreditation with Commendation”

Fort Lauderdale, FL – Broward Health’s Continuing Medical Education (CME) program has been awarded accreditation with commendation by the Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education (ACCME).

This is the highest distinction awarded by ACCME and designates the public healthcare system as a provider of continuing medical education for physicians through 2023. The accreditation demonstrates that Broward Health is a system focused on quality improvement, as well as a learning organization and a change agent for both physicians and patients. The accreditation was achieved under the guidance of Broward Health’s CME Chairman Glenn Singer, MD, Chief Medical Officer Dan Westphal, MD and CME Coordinator Deziree McAllister.

“Broward Health is honored to receive this prestigious recognition from ACCME and it highlights our dedication to providing a robust continuing medication education program to our physicians,” said Dr. Westphal. 

Accreditation in the ACCME system underscores that Broward Health delivers education that is evidenced-based, relevant to clinicians’ needs and independent of commercial influence. The system employs a rigorous process for evaluating CME programs, according to standards that reflect the values of the educator community, and aims to accelerate learning, inspire change and champion improvements in healthcare. Through participation in an accredited CME, clinicians and other healthcare providers drive improvement in their practice and optimize the care, health and wellness of their patients.
