Continuing Medical Education
The University of Maryland School of Medicine is accredited by the ACCME and provides a wide array of continuing medical education (CME) activities. These educational activities assist physicians in the maintenance and enhancement of their clinical competence in order to promote high quality health care for the citizens of Maryland and elsewhere and to improve patient outcomes. To assure clinical relevance, activities are designed on the basis of identified educational needs of practicing physicians.
CME offerings consist of courses (one-half to five days in length), "hands on" workshops, enduring materials (including self-study programs), and a complex array of clinical departmental and division rounds and conferences. Opportunities for interaction between attendees and presenters are part of all CME activities where possible.
The CME program is administered by the associate dean for Graduate and Continuing Medical Education and a full-time staff, with the assistance of a faculty advisory committee. For further information please contact:
