Manhattan Psychiatric Center: Controls Over Continuing Medical Education

Physicians who treat patients are required to meet certain continuing education requirements established by the American Medical Association. However, we found that Center records often do not indicate whether its physicians have met these requirements. We also identified significant weaknesses in the Center's practices for approving and verifying the attendance of physicians at off-site training sessions. We recommend a number of improvements that would strengthen Center practices in relation to its physicians' continuing education requirements.
