The Clinical Guidelines Committee
The mission of the Clinical Guidelines Committee (CGC) is to oversee the development of guidelines that will improve the practice of medicine. The CGC will provide advice, assistance, and direction to the Education Committee and to the staff of Clinical Policy in the development and implementation of College guidelines.... The CGC will make recommendations: regarding appropriate clinical practices to be embodied in evidence-based guidelines; guidance on the appropriate use of these guidelines; development of new methods to enhance College guideline application to clinical practice; and identification of technology assessment issues pertinent to the College and internal medicine.
The College appoints CGC committee members for one-year terms, renewable for a total of four years. Committee members are internists with expertise in primary care, health care administration, and medical and health services research.
