The Intercom is SACME’s longest standing publication. The tri-annual electronic SACME newsletter provides leadership with a channel to communicate significant Board and committee milestones to members and routinely includes an update from the president, annual meeting programming, and periodic articles on committee activities. It also features updates from similarly positioned organizations such as the ACCME, AAMC, and ABMS and provides a venue for highlighting individual and organizational member achievements.
A quarterly, online digital publication, the newsletter provides information on current CPD/CE practice trends, best practices, data shots and opinions on "hot topics" of interest to the entire CPD/CE community. Standing columns provide helpful tips on CPD/CE practice challenges and educational issues. A Publications & Scholarship column provides commentary and links to current peer-reviewed articles which benefit faculty in their roles as teachers and scholars. An International CPD column explores and compares CME accreditation systems world-wide. Funding opportunities in CPD/CE and important meetings are listed in each issue.
