“This award exemplifies PACE’s commitment to planning, implementing and evaluating high-quality, effective continuing medical education for osteopathic physicians and rewards that commitment with the highest level of accreditation for the maximum term available,” said Pam McFadden, associate vice president of PACE.

PACE has one of the larger academic continuing education programs in the United States, registering more than 18,000 health care professionals at more than 600 activities in 43 states each year. It conducts a variety of activities to meet the needs of physicians and other health professionals, including live conferences, CDs, DVDs, online, print and nontraditional CME and CE.

PACE is nationally accredited by the Accreditation Council on Continuing Medical Education (ACCME) and the AOA.

“We’re one of only seven providers in the country maintaining dual accreditation. This makes us uniquely able to meet the educational needs of all physicians,” McFadden said.
