Marquis' big tent vision for Alliance

Share this article:

Damon Marquis wants to make one thing clear: CME is not the only important form of medical education.

Marquis, who took over last month as president of the newly named Alliance for Continuing Education for the Health Professions (ACEHP), is moving aggressively to expand the group's focus past certified CME.

“Education for physicians cannot be done in a bubble,” he told MM&M. “Healthcare, and particularly outcomes, are improved by educating the full healthcare team.”

In addition to physicians, healthcare providers for whom Alliance members produce education include social workers, pharmacists and nurses. The group wants to expand accordingly, by reaching out to a broader swath of stakeholders and working to ensure programs and competencies meet their needs. Says, Marquis, “What we are trying to do is bring everyone together under one tent.”
