BVHS accredited as a provider of continuing medical education for physicians

Blanchard Valley Health System (BVHS) has been resurveyed by the Ohio State Medical Association Focused Task Force on Accreditation and awarded accreditation for four years as a provider of Continuing Medical Education (CME) for physicians.

BVHS has been offering these educational opportunities since 1975, initially only for physicians. However, at BVHS any interested medical professionals such as medical students, nurses, pharmacists, physician assistants and more are invited to attend as well. 

“BVHS was one of the first health systems in Ohio to initiate this CME program,” said William Kose, MD, chief medical officer at Blanchard Valley Medical Practices, a division of BVHS. “We are proud to provide the medical community with a method of continuous learning.” 

This accreditation assures the medical community and the public that BVHS provides physicians and other medical professionals with relevant, effective, practice-based CME that supports US health care quality improvement. BVHS will be resurveyed in four years after this accreditation expires.
