Specialty

This page describes the recommended values for Specialty as represented in Healthcare LOM version 1.0.

They are intended to provide guidance for those organizations seeking to describe the professional audience for an educational offering in a consistent manner. The list of health specialties is adapted from specialties and internal medicine/pediatric subspecialties as recognized by the Accreditation Council on Graduate Medical Education and the American Board of Medical Specialties. These lists may not be adequate to meet the needs of hospitals and large healthcare organizations requiring a highly detailed hierarchical list of professions. More detailed lists of healthcare professionals have been defined by HL7, SNOMED, the US Health Resources and Services Administration, the US Office of Program Management, and the National Center of Educational Statistics (Classification of Instructional Programs).
