Directly Provided Activities

The overall goal of the Office of Continuing Medical Education is to provide physicians and other healthcare professionals with programs aimed at improving their skills and knowledge to assist them in the delivery of outstanding medical care.  The Office of CME works to assist presenting departments in developing and executing quality educational programs that meet the needs of today’s practicing physicians and healthcare professionals.  The planning and development services offered by the Office of CME can be broken down into two major areas, providership of CME activities for which PRA credits may be awarded and meeting planning.
