Surveying the Landscape: What We’re Learning About the Changing World of Professional Development

June 26th, 2019 2:00-3:00 pm CT

Session Presenter

President and Chief Executive Officer

Facilitated by

Continuing medical education is rapidly evolving to meet the dynamically changing needs of health professionals. In this webinar we will use ACCME’s strategic plan as the foundation to explore and explain how that evolution is being facilitated and encouraged. Opportunities and needs that we’ll discuss include harmonization of requirements and standards, better educational methods, attention to the learning environment, investment in faculty educators, a more cohesive approach to learner data management and the support for educational research. By the end of the session, attendees should have a clear picture of how ACCME sees the future of CME, and what we’re doing to help get us there.
