Curriculum Committee

In addition to its Board of Directors, MECOP has a Curriculum Committee of professionals who help guide the content of the CME programs that MECOP accredits. The Curriculum Committee reviews all CME applications and needs assessments to ensure that the scope of each proposed activity fits a CME practice gap.
