While there are many resources that define entry-level and minimum standards, a doctoring profession should have standards of excellence that reflect exceptional practice. To that end, the House passed a motion calling for a study of the feasibility of developing mechanisms to recognize centers of clinical excellence. An interim report will be provided to the 2013 House with a final report to the 2014 House. The final report will include costs, interests, and the effect on the profession and the public of developing these mechanisms. [RC-28]
Draft language adopted by the 2012 House will be available on the House Community next week. Final language for all actions taken by the June 2012 House will be available by September after the minutes have been approved.
