Continuing Medical Education

Continuing medical education, as defined by the AMA and ACCME as “educational activities which serve to maintain, develop, or increase the knowledge, skills, professional performance and relationships that a physician uses to provide services for patients, the public or the profession.  The content of CME is the body of knowledge and skills generally recognized and accepted by the profession as within the basic medical sciences, the discipline of clinical medicine, and the provision of health care to the public.” 

A variety of education formats may be used such as live activities (conferences, regularly scheduled conferences, video conferences) or as enduring materials (internet, monographs, CD-Roms, video/audio tapes).

The University Center for Continuing and Outreach Education is responsible for the development and implementation of CME activities that are approved for AMA Category 1 credit.  The staff in CCOE is knowledgeable about the required educational, financial and logistic process required for the development of CME activities.  They have extensive experience in coordinating CME activities nationally and internationally.
