Continuing/Independent Medical Education Support

Continuing medical education (CME) programs are independently run and controlled programs that fulfill an unmet need in an effort to advance medical science and knowledge. Programs include those developed for healthcare professionals to maintain, develop, and enhance their knowledge, skills, and professional performance to provide better patient care. Eligible CME programs may be provided by an academic institution, hospital, or association.
