Continuing Medical Education (CME) helps physicians and health care professionals stay abreast of current evidence-based treatment plans for their patients.
Our CME programs provide opportunities for physicians and allied health care professionals to improve their practice via evidence-based educational activities that focus on advances in medicine, medical technology and biomedical research as well as changes in the health care environment.
While New York State does not require AMA PRA Category 1 Credits™ to maintain licensure, area hospitals, health insurance companies and specialty boards do.
Furthermore, as a school of medicine, we are committed to providing medical education to medical students, residents and physicians on our faculty and in the community.
We promote a vibrant and supportive shared learning community for health care professionals. In addition to disseminating knowledge, our programs foster positive professional relationships, supporting communication and enhancing the potential for productive collaborations. These networks are increasingly vital as treatment methodologies and technologies evolve rapidly.
We also provide a structured forum for CME course planners and presenters. They can demonstrate their expertise and their commitment to advancing standards of care, and share ideas for maximizing programs’ success.
The UB School of Medicine and Biomedical Sciences is accredited by the Accreditation Council for CME (ACCME) to provide CME to physicians.
Our primary audience comprises Western New York physicians. Our reach, however, extends worldwide, as far away as China and Egypt.
We co-sponsor activities with international institutions and organizations, and international participants attend both our locally and nationally sponsored meetings.
