Methodist Hospital has received a four-year re-accreditation from the Kentucky
Medical Association (KMA), which gives Methodist Hospital approval to
hold Category I Continuing Medical Education (CME) at the facility. “The
Hospital first became accredited for Category I CME’s in 1996,”
said Kelly Edmondson, Certified CME Coordinator, who was on hand for the
review along with Dr. Paul Moore, Chairman of the CME Committee and Benny
Nolen, President and CEO at Methodist Hospital.
According to the Kentucky Board of Medical Licensure, physicians are required
to complete 60 hours of Continuing Medical Education every three years.
Methodist Hospital is able to assist its medical staff in this requirement
by holding CME meetings.
Gerald Rightmyer, MD, Methodist Family Medicine, commented, “The
convenience of quality CME is very important to me, and that is what we
get from our CME program. Medical practice is an ever evolving endeavor,
hence the need for continuing education. We have had good local speakers
and good speakers from various universities including University of Kentucky,
University of Louisville and Vanderbilt University. I always find these
programs informative and useful to improve my practice and to help me
to be a better source of information to my patients.”
