ASHLAND, Ky. – The Kentucky Heart Foundation’s continuing medical education program has earned six-year accreditation with commendation from the Kentucky Medical Association.
As an accredited CME body, the Kentucky Heart Foundation reviews programs and course content for the continuing education of physicians. These programs are designed to maintain, develop or increase the knowledge, skills and professional performance of physicians in providing services to patients, the public, or the profession.
Physicians must participate in CME programs to maintain licensure.
“The Kentucky Heart Foundation’s CME program is long standing and serves the needs of physicians and ultimately patients in an underserved area of the state,” KMA surveyors said.
“The support of (King’s Daughters Medical Center) and the participation of varying representatives across specialties create a positive environment for a thriving CME program.”
The Kentucky Heart Foundation previously was accredited by the Kentucky Medical Association in May 2007.
“We are very proud of our CME program,” said Betsy Donahue, the foundation’s CME coordinator. “We will continue to strive to align our educational efforts with the quality initiatives of the medical center,” she said.
The Kentucky Heart Foundation is a non-profit research institute dedicated to improving quality of life by reducing the devastating impact of cardiovascular disease in the Tri-State area through research, education, prevention and early detection.
