AAFP director leaves for QI spin-off
NIQIE aims to close the CME-QI gap. Her replacement, Mindi McKenna, PhD, MBA, had been an assistant professor at Rockhurst University.
Davis, who was CME director since 2002, cited the academy’s leadership in seeing the “value and need for integrating quality and education,” an issue that has grown in importance since ACCME released updated accreditation criteria. Leaving the academy, she said, was an acknowledgement that “It’s really bigger than family medicine.”
While McKenna, whom Davis recruited, has never produced CME, Davis doesn’t see that as an obstacle: “They’ve got plenty of good people at the academy who can do that.”
