Current CME Activities

We sponsor educational activities in multiple formats to accommodate your interests, learning styles and professional needs.

Our live educational activities help physicians and health care professionals stay current with new treatments and policy changes that affect their practices.

We sponsor regularly scheduled series in compliance with ACCME’s standards for weekly or monthly activities, planned and presented by our educational providers’ staff. These include grand rounds, journal clubs and case conferences.

We also organize special one-off events to explore specific topics throughout the year, including seminars, workshops, simulations, panel discussions and interactive sessions.

Course Details and Signup

You can find details on our upcoming courses on the CME calendar. To sign up, contact the activity’s education provider, who will be listed on the calendar as the entity planning the event.

Grand Rounds

These regular lectures, case presentations and discussions offer AMA PRA Category 1 Credits™ equivalent to the duration of the program, typically one or one and a half hours. You will need to sign in and should claim credit only for the number of hours you actually spend in any educational activity.

Grand Rounds are scheduled on weekly, monthly and quarterly bases.

Conferences

Most conferences sponsored by the CME focus on the diagnosis and treatment of a particular condition or medical problem. They may last one day or take place over several days.  These activities reward attendees in several ways:

  • Sessions target specific topics pertinent to your practice, focusing on information to help you improve performance and patient outcomes.
  • Professionals who work in similar environments and see patients with similar healthcare issues compare experiences, so you learn from one another as well as experts in the field.
  • Presentations keep you up to date with changing clinical guildlines, government mandates and policies.

We also occasionally organize conferences that address a variety of topics. These generally take place in rural hospital settings or primary care settings where healthcare professionals face a wider range of healthcare issues.

Performance Improvement Activities

Performance improvement (PI) activities help you improve targeted aspects of your practice through an evidence-based, three-part program. They may be carried out individually or as part of a group of physicians. You will assess your current practice, learn about specific performance measures, apply the new measures over a useful interval, and at the end, re-evaluate your performance.

You can earn up to 20 AMA PRA Category 1 Credits™ for completing all stages of a PI activity.

Every opportunity to help your patients stop smoking give you an opportunity to promote their overall health. Patients working to stop smoking have much greater success when their clinicians assist them.
