Continuing Medical Education

The Indiana University School of Medicine, through the Division of Continuing Medical Education, provides a variety of learning opportunities to physicians, particularly in Indiana, utilizing principles of adult learning so physicians may meet the emerging health care challenges of the present and the future. Nationally recognized for excellence, the IU School of Medicine is accredited by the Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education (ACCME).

Linking clinical expertise, state-of-the-art educational planning, and comprehensive events management, the Division of CME matches clinical needs with appropriate learning activities and delivery formats; explores innovative solutions to the educational challenges related to health care reform, expanding biomedical information and technologies, and informatics and quality management principles; ensures quality in the educational process by applying adult learning principles, evidence-based medicine, and a focus on improved patient outcomes; and builds alliances for collaborative research, education, and clinical practice improvement.

Comprehensive educational opportunities are available in many formats that are timely, effective, and practical, including teaching improvement; tools for self-directed learning; professional development; collaborative projects; distance learning activities in videoconferencing and teleconferencing; enduring materials such as videos, Internet CME, CD-ROMs, monographs and journals; mini-fellowships; grand rounds and recurring events; and a wide variety of symposia, conferences, workshops, and seminars.
