Suburban Health Organization (SHO) is accredited by the Indiana State Medical Association (ISMA), a recognized provider through the ACCME® to accredit organizations in Indiana to offer continuing medical education (CME) programs. As an accredited CME provider, SHO CME team is responsible for the development and oversight of CME activities to ensure the Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education (ACCME) and American Medical Association (AMA) requirements are met. SHO’s CME program is designed to serve the professional and educational needs of physicians to promote life-long learning and practice improvement opportunities, and to be responsive to the health care environment. Our team develops CME activities that offer opportunities to improve the quality of patient care and health systems. Collaboration with non-commercial organizations is welcome.
