Continuing Medical Education at Intermountain Healthcare

Our History

Intermountain Healthcare has maintained an ACCME accredited CME program continuously since 1986. The initial accreditation was achieved by IHC Salt Lake Valley Hospitals CME program and was intended to serve the physician educational needs of Intermountain’s three Salt Lake City hospitals at that time: LDS Hospital, Cottonwood Hospital and Alta View Hospital.

In January 2007, the Salt Lake Valley Hospitals CME program joined with the Dixie Regional Medical Center and Logan Regional Hospital CME programs to form the Intermountain CME program, and McKay-Dee Hospital joined in 2010. The Intermountain CME program now serves a system-wide audience of providers at all Intermountain centers, although Primary Children’s Hospital maintains their facility-specific accredited education program.

As part of Intermountain’s commitment to interdisciplinary education, members of the Chief Medical Office, Chief Nursing Office, and Pharmacy Services decided in spring 2012 to bring accredited education for all the disciplines together under a single, centralized entity—the Intermountain CME department.  The CME department’s transition to truly interdisciplinary education supports Intermountain’s goal to providing education that has been created by the medical team, for the medical team.
