UofL Dermatology Chief Tapped by ACCME

July 31, 2016

Jeffrey P. Callen, MD, chief of the Division of Dermatology at the University of Louisville School of Medicine in Kentucky, has been elected to serve on the Accreditation Review Committee (ARC) of the Accreditation Council of Continuing Medical Education (ACCME).

His two-year term begins Dec. 1, 2016.

The non-profit ACCME accredits institutions throughout the United States that offer continuing medical education (CME). Accreditation decisions are determined through a review by two ACCME committees: first, the Accreditation Review Committee, and second, the Decision Committee of the Board of Directors. All accreditation decisions are then ratified by the ACCME’s Board of Directors.

All physicians are required to earn CME credit in order to maintain their license to practice. In Kentucky, all physicians who maintain an active Kentucky medical or osteopathic license are required to complete 60 hours of CME every three years.

Dr. Callen earned his undergraduate degree from the University of Wisconsin in Madison and medical degree from the University of Michigan, where he also performed residencies in internal medicine and dermatology. He joined the faculty at the University of Louisville in 1977, and became a professor and the chief of the Division of Dermatology in 1988.
