The Doctors Company’s CME Offerings Receive Prestigious Accreditation

Napa, California—August 31, 2021—The Doctors Company has been honored with Reaccreditation with Commendation from the Accreditation Council for Continuing Education (ACCME) for providing continuing medical education (CME) to help physicians enhance safety and mitigate risk.

The Accreditation with Commendation recognizes the achievements of CME providers that advance interprofessional collaborative practice, address public health priorities, create behavioral change, show leadership, leverage educational technology, and demonstrate the impact of education on healthcare professionals and patients.

“Receiving this prestigious Accreditation with Commendation recognizes our dedication to advancing the practice of good medicine and providing the best imaginable service to those who provide care,” said Kerin Torpey Bashaw, MPH, RN, Senior Vice President of Patient Safety and Risk Management for The Doctors Company.

The Doctors Company first received Accreditation in 2016 and in July 2021 was awarded Reaccreditation with Commendation. Receiving this distinction places The Doctors Company among only 12 percent of CME-producing institutions that have been awarded Accreditation with Commendation in the past two years.

While most CME providers rely on published peer-reviewed papers that report study findings identifying gaps in physician performance to build their programs, The Doctors Company bases its offerings on proprietary data. It develops CME offerings based on its patient safety and risk management data and analysis of medical malpractice claims filed against its members. This strategy allows The Doctors Company to identify the education needed to mitigate risks of medical errors and to identify strategies to enhance patient safety.
