Priya Wanchoo, MD, CCMEP, joined Haymarket Medical Education as VP and medical director. The grant development group will report to her, and she is tasked with helping HME to improve the quality of grant proposals, and contributing her medical perspective to myCME.

ACCME president and CEO Murray Kope­low, MD (pictured), said a JAMA study that explored the relationship between “medical communication companies” and drug and device companies was “wrong” about ACCME-accredited providers.

The Audio-Digest Foundation announced the release of original programs last month, including lectures in general surgery, family practice, emergency medicine and anesthesiology.
