About Professional Education


ACCME Awards Joslin CME Accreditation with Commendation

Joslin Diabetes Center was awarded a six-year reaccreditation and the status of "Accreditation with Commendation" by the Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education (ACCME), the highest rating achievable by a provider of CME. Joslin was recognized for its exemplary performance in program planning, needs assessment, activity evaluation and evaluation of our overall educational program. Factors that contributed to this success are our consistently fair-balanced, evidence-based educational activities and our innovative educational outcomes measurement techniques.


Joslin Diabetes Center has helped revolutionize the diagnosis, treatment, and prevention of diabetes worldwide since its founding more than a century ago. Through its affiliation with Harvard Medical School and its staff of luminaries in their fields, Joslin has emerged as a leader in cutting-edge research and pioneering approaches to education and clinical care. Joslin's continuing education activities for physicians and other health professionals advance the highest standards of care, drawing on up-to-the-minute medical literature to provide current, relevant, and evidence-based findings from Joslin faculty and other experts.

Our mission is to empower healthcare providers to more effectively set the standards of diabetes care for their communities, helping to provide optimal management of all diabetes patients, improve healthcare outcomes, and enhance patient quality of life.

Continuing Medical Education (CME)

Joslin Diabetes Center is accredited by the Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education to provide continuing medical education for physicians. Joslin’s programs are noted for their academic rigor, professional production, and aggressive audience generation efforts. Supported largely through educational grants, programs include live symposia and courses, satellite teleconferences, and Web-based and multimedia educational activities.

Continuing Education (CE)

Joslin develops educational programs for nurses, dietitians, pharmacists and others healthcare professionals. The acquisition of knowledge and skills needed to utilize diabetes treatments require repeated educational exposure to ensure that the necessary treatment changes are incorporated into daily practice. This education is important for all members of the diabetes team.

Educational Impact Assessment

Providing quality education is Joslin’s strength and priority. The ability to measure the effect that education has on the practices and processes of healthcare providers is an area in which Joslin has taken great strides. Through the implementation of the Educational Impact Assessment (EIA) tool, Joslin is able to quantify the effect an educational activity has in the real healthcare world. Contact us at (888) 567-5460 or by e-mail at cme@joslin.harvard.edu for more information on EIA or any of our activities.
