For the Public

Medical school and residency programs are the beginning of doctors' training. For the rest of their careers, physicians rely on accredited continuing medical education to help them improve their practice and deliver high-quality, safe, effective patient care. Accredited CME covers the full range of topics important to health care—from the latest breakthroughs in medical research to how to communicate with families.
