The CME department derives its mission from Cleveland Clinic's founding mission “to provide better care of the sick, investigation of their problems, and further education of those who serve.” The CME department’s goal is to advance medical knowledge through continuing education that will improve the competencies of physicians and affiliated health care providers through various formats based on high quality continuing education programs addressing in particular, professional practice gaps. These programs at the same time will address the need to improve knowledge and skills to promote better patient outcomes.
The Department’s major responsibility is to keep physicians and affiliated health care providers apprised of innovative, evidence-based information. Our geographic target includes three levels: Florida, the U.S., and a significant international audience.
The emphasis of our CME activities is on evidence-based information on selected diseases assessed by the learner’s need to improve practice and promote competencies that lead to improvements in patient care.
Types of Activities
CME activities include didactic lectures, live surgery presentations, hands-on workshops and audience participation. Interactivity between faculty and participants is emphasized in question answer formats and utilizing an audience response system.
All activities are designed to maintain, develop, or increase knowledge, competence or professional performance within the physicians’ scope of practice, with the intended result of improving patient care and reducing disease impact.
