Accreditation with Commendation

In 2013, Northwell Health was awarded “Accreditation with Commendation" as a provider of Continuing Medical Education by the Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education. 
The Accreditation with Commendation award status grants Northwell Health a six year accreditation (the maximum possible) and positions it among the top providers of continuing medical education in the United States. To be considered exemplary, a program must go well beyond simply meeting the basic requirements by showing innovation and creativity in addressing the components that make up the ACCME’s Essential areas and Standards.
