March 4, 2022

The Medical Association of Georgia in cooperation with the Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education (ACCME) awarded the Certificate of Full Accreditation of Continuing Medical Education (CME) to Northeast Georgia Health System (NGHS). This privilege was awarded for having fulfilled the requirements set forth in the Essentials and Standards for Accreditation Council for CME. The new term of accreditation expires on February 28, 2026.

Focusing on a qualified medical staff by recognizing their vital role in the provision of quality healthcare services is just one of the NGHS values. In accordance with the overall organizational mission and this value statement, NGHS will provide an integrative CME Program to support and influence physicians’ continuing professional development while promoting positive patient outcomes.

“Physicians rely on accredited CME as one of the support systems that helps them drive improvements in practice and optimize the care, health, and wellness of patients. Participation in accredited CME helps physicians meet requirements for maintenance of licensure, maintenance of certification, credentialing, membership in professional societies and other professional privileges. Physicians can count on accredited CME to provide a protected space for them to learn and teach without commercial influence.”
