Accreditation Commission for Midwifery Education (ACME): Maximizing Educational Quality through the ACME Criteria

Monday, May 23, from 8 am-2 pm

$275 includes a light breakfast, lunch and course materials


The process of accreditation of midwifery education programs is becoming more complex. Often program directors and other faculty have not had experience in preparing for the accreditation process. This workshop is designed to provide up-to-date information on writing the Self-Evaluation Report (SER) and preparing for a site visit. In addition, there will be an in-depth review of criteria and ACME policies. Attendees will actively participate in activities designed to prepare them for a successful accreditation process and annual monitoring during the accreditation period. Information presented will also be relevant for those planning to start a new education program and preparing for the pre-accreditation process.

Join us in Albuquerque, New Mexico at the ACNM annual conference for a full day workshop on ACME accreditation! This is an excellent workshop for new program directors, those program directors preparing for reaccreditation in the next 1-3 years, or those who want to have a deeper understanding about the requirements to maintain an ACME accredited midwifery program.
