Certified CME provider: Scienta Healthcare Education
Scienta Healthcare Education®, an ACCME-accredited medical education company since 1997, is dedicated to the development and dissemination of CME. Through innovative approaches to educational design, delivery, and outcomes measurement, Scienta evolves CME to be more dynamic and relevant. Scienta is committed to the continuous quality improvement of CME and the practice of medicine.
In December 2007, Scienta received ACCME Accreditation With Commendation. The company was found to be exemplary in the areas of organizational framework, utilization of needs assessments, and overall CME program improvement.
Scienta identifies clinical gaps in physician competence and performance and provides evidence-based learning opportunities to fill those gaps. Scienta incorporates level 3 (learning) or 4 (performance) outcomes measurement in every activity it certifies. For educational activities targeted to specialist audiences, Scienta has established expertise and credibility in delivering content in a core group of clinical areas, including gastroenterology, hematology, infectious diseases, neurology, and pulmonology.
Scienta also provides robust educational offerings for primary care physicians and is a CE provider for other healthcare professionals (pharmacists, nurses, and physician extenders) through collaboration with professional societies and accredited bodies.
