NORD CME programming provides a dynamic and interactive program designed to increase diagnostic awareness of rare diseases where seemingly typical patient symptoms and treatments are actually atypical and continue to manifest over time. There are over 7,000 rare disorders that are known to affect 30 million Americans, more than half of which are children. Diagnostic resources, tools and detailed infrastructure of resources for both providers and patients are demonstrated during programming.
These activities have been planned and implemented in accordance with the Essential Areas and policies of the Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education (ACCME) through the joint providership of The University of Massachusetts (UMass) Continuing Medical Education and the National Organization for Rare Disorders (NORD). The UMass Continuing Medical Education is accredited by the ACCME to provide continuing medical education for physicians.
