Manhattan Psychiatric Center: Controls Over Continuing Medical Education (Follow-Up Review)
Physicians who treat patients are required to meet certain continuing education
requirements established by the American Medical Association. In our prior audit
report 98-S-75, we found that Manhattan Psychiatric Centerís records often did
not indicate whether its physicians had met these requirements. We also identified
significant weaknesses in the Center=s practices for approving and verifying physicians
attendance at off-site training sessions. In our follow-up review, we found that
some of these weaknesses had been addressed, but physicians who lacked the required
number of continuing education credits continued to be re-certified.
