Centers of Excellence in Minimally Invasive Gynecology (COEMIG)
How to become a COEMIG-designated site:
Hospital sites that are interested in becoming AAGL Centers of Excellence in MIGS are invited to visit the web site of our partner, Surgical Review Corporation, to learn more about the COEMIG designation process.
The COEMIG designation is available to surgeons, hospitals and ambulatory surgery centers around the world that provide minimally invasive gynecologic surgical care on an inpatient and outpatient basis. Surgeons do not have to be a member of the AAGL or any other medical society to participate.
To enable program growth, the AAGL initiated COEMIG to address nationwide problems within the specialty, including:
- Difficulty in identifying excellence for patients and providers
- The need to control care provider costs and outcomes (including reimbursement and malpractice rates)
- Use of outdated procedures
- The need to establish universal standards to measure program performance
