The purpose of the CME program is the initiation and facilitation of exemplary continuing medical education activities for physicians and other medical care providers. The CME Committee assures that the program’s goals are consistent with the hospital’s institutional mission: to deliver the highest quality patient care, provide quality education to health care professionals; and to attain the highest standards for continuing medical education.
The focus of our CME program is on clinical aspects of medicine, including primary care, specialty, and subspecialty topics. Activities offer information on advances in treatment; changing concepts in patient diagnosis and management; and developments in clinical techniques, pharmacological agents and ethical, cultural and diversity issues in health care.
Our audience includes attending physicians, resident physicians, medical students and other providers of medical care from Maimonides Medical Center and the surrounding area.
Types of Activities
The CME Office activities include Regularly Scheduled Series (RSSs), lectures and symposia. We strive to provide a wide range of CME opportunities to appeal to a broad range of specialties.
It is expected that participants will enhance their medical knowledge or acquire new skills, thereby improving their performance in clinical practice. Outcomes are measured at the conclusion of each activity via evaluation tools, which are utilized and customized to the learning objectives and identified need of the specific activity. Feedback obtained from evaluations is used to plan and improve curriculum. We continually evaluate the impact our programs have on physician and institutional performance, and will focus our efforts to ensure we meet our educational objectives.
