ACOG is dedicated to providing all Fellows, Junior Fellows and other health care providers with lifelong learning opportunities through diverse offerings such as PROLOG, Annual Clinical and Scientific Meeting, postgraduate courses, coding workshops, multimedia resources, and Maintenance of Certification articles. Members have a wide range of CME opportunities, which ultimately facilitates the improvement of women’s health care.
ACOG’s Committee on Continuing Medical Education (CCME) oversees the development of CME offerings, as well as the quality and consistency of the content to ensure compliance with the policies of the Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education (ACCME). The CCME is headed by Wayne Trout, MD, District V chair, and Kirk Ramin, MD, District VI vice-chair. The committee is comprised of one member from each district, plus liaisons from the ACOG Committee on Scientific Program, ACOG executive board, young physician membership, and representatives from Mexico and Canada to ensure diversity. ACOG staff who are responsible for ACOG’s CME program includes Vice President of Education, Sandra A. Carson, MD, and the Director of the Department of Continuing Professional Development, Vanita Murray.
