We aim to advance lifelong learning to improve patient's health and the value of healthcare.
Since its founding in 1916 IPMA has provided physicians and other health care providers with the knowledge and skills needed to provide the best care for your patients. Our first meeting was held in Freeport Illinois. From that rural beginning our reach has expanded throughout the United States and globally.
The nine member board of directors is comprised of physicians from Iowa, Illinois, and Wisconsin who share a commitment to lifelong learning. We come together from all walks of medicine - rural family medicine, multispecialty clinics, academic medical centers, payers, integrated health systems, public health and national physician associations.
The IPMA staff is available to design an education or quality improvement project to meet your needs or answer any question on upcoming offerings. We bring experience in practice transformation, population management, quality improvement, accreditation and adult education.
IPMA holds Accreditation with Commendation from the Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education and is approved by the American Board of Medical Specialties as a Portfolio Program Sponsor.
IPMA has received multiple awards for its educational programming including the ACEhp- Award for Innovation in Continuing Professional Development, Award for Outstanding Live CME Activity, Award for Outstanding Educational Collaboration.
Through our collaborative partnerships we work with healthcare organizations and communities large and small to develop innovative and cost effective educational and quality improvement solutions.
Through our accreditation partnerships, IPMA works with associations and societies to provide accreditation services for your live and online educational programs. We are committed to simplifying the accreditation process so that you can meet your members’ educational needs.
