CME Outfitters Receives Five Year Full Approval from American Psychological Association
APA Continuing Education Committee OK's CMEO as a CE sponsor for psychologists
ROCKVILLE, MD - AUGUST 1, 2006
CME Outfitters, LLC, an independent accredited provider of multidisciplinary continuing education programming and related healthcare communications services, is proud to announce that it has been granted five year full approval as a sponsor of continuing education for psychologists.
As noted on the APA website (www.apa.org), "The APA Sponsor Approval System provides organizations offering CE to psychologists an opportunity to earn the APA sponsor approval status that is given to those organizations that can demonstrate a commitment to the highest level of quality in the CE programs they offer to psychologists. For purposes of the Sponsor Approval System, continuing education is defined as 'planned educational activities intended to further education and training of psychologists for the enhancement of psychological practice, education, administration, and research.'"
CME Outfitters, now entering its fifth year in business, had previously been granted two-year preliminary approval status by the APA after its first application in early 2004. This latest achievement cements the company's standing among the industry's elite and most knowledgeable providers of continuing education.
"Our strong focus in the neurosciences made it an easy decision for CME Outfitters to pursue APA accreditation," said Richard Vanderpool, CME Outfitters' Director of Accreditation and a 13-year veteran of the CE community. He noted that the approval report from the APA contained no areas of concern regarding the educational program at CME Outfitters.
"CME Outfitters recognizes the multidisciplinary makeup of the modern treatment team, especially when it comes to mental health. Psychologists play an obvious and key role in caring for persons with mental illness, and we are committed to satisfying their need for evidence-based education and training," said Christopher Perez, CME Outfitters managing partner in charge of accreditation and communications.
CME Outfitters develops and distributes live, recorded, print, and web-based educational activities to thousands of clinicians each year and offers expert accreditation services for non-accredited organizations.
