The France Foundation Receives ACCME Accreditation with Commendation as a Provider of Continuing Medical Education

OLD LYME, CT — JANUARY 23, 2017 — The France Foundation, a leading medical education company, announced they have received their second accreditation with commendation as a provider of continuing medical education by the Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education (ACCME). ACCME accreditation with commendation is the highest level of accreditation and places The France Foundation amongst the top 38% of providers of continuing medical education in the United States, which includes some of the nation’s most prestigious medical schools, national medical societies, and leading hospitals. ACCME-accredited providers certify educational activities for the American Medical Association’s Physician’s Recognition Award (“AMA PRA”). The AMA PRA is utilized by state licensing boards and boards of medical specialties to re-license physicians and re-certify them in their areas of specialty.

In announcing this achievement, The France Foundation President Stacy Miller said “This acknowledgement of The France Foundation’s performance-in-practice further empowers our core educational mission to “design education that builds upon clinician knowledge and skills to improve the quality of care for their patients.”

Accreditation with Commendation is awarded to providers that demonstrate compliance in all of ACCME’s criteria and for meeting all of the accreditation requirements. The ACCME commended The France Foundation for meeting the requirements and demonstrating its commitment as a learning organization and a change agent for the physicians and patients served. They also noted The France Foundation’s support of physician learning and change that is part of a system for quality improvement.

ACCME accreditation seeks to assure both physicians and the public that continuing medical education activities sponsored by The France Foundation meet the high standards of the Criteria for Accreditation and the Standards for Commercial Support of the ACCME.

The France Foundation is also accredited by the Accreditation Council for Pharmacy Education (ACPE) to provide education to pharmacists. For more information about The France Foundation’s award-winning CME program, please contact Marina Galanakis at (860) 598-2260.
