Quality Education must have a formative effect on the mind, character or physical ability of an individual by which is taught the means by which to obtain new knowledge or abilities. At the American Academy of Procedural Medicine we have incorporated quality into our certification processes by preparing criterion measures and meaningful divisions determined to focus on the output of the training received by physicians. We are continuing to measure these outputs by a number of criteria to ensure the highest quality education is received prior to certification.
Throughout the certification process we review the quality of teaching and measure the following items to ensure your certification is reflective of the latest and highest quality standards:
- Uniqueness of local and national medical content
- Evidenced Based protocols and standards of care
- Active, standards-based participation methods for “hands–on” training
- Quality processes for learning
- Teacher feedback mechanisms for performance assessment and factual knowledge of participants.
- Ongoing Professional Development for Physicians
- Using technology to improve clinical outcomes and reduce rather than increase disparities in medical care.
- Quality Outcomes
Our Advisory Board continues to evaluate and assess the instruction, information, and learning for of all physicians associated with the certification process. We continue to adapt to the latest evidence-based medical information available and incorporate these best practices into our processes to ensure that our AAOPM physicians are best suited in performing new medical, aesthetic, and pain management procedures in the 21st century.
Quality outcomes are intentional, they include the attitudes and expectations of physicians to be able to perform at the highest level these new procedures. At the American Academy of Procedural Medicine we strive to exceed these attitudes and expectations for each and every member of our society.
