STATE OF CALIFORNIA ASSEMBLY BILL 1195:
CULTURAL COMPETENCY

Effective July 1, 2006, California State Assembly Bill 1195 requires that all continuing medical education includes curriculum in the subjects of cultural and linguistic competency in the practice of medicine. Although this program was not seeking CME accreditation we provide information on the in-depth guidance on this issue that is available at HHS's website at http://www.hhs.gov/ocr/, because several medical professionals are in attendance.
