Welcome to the Website from the Albert Einstein College of Medicine University and Montefiore Medical Center, Center for Continuing Medical Education (CCME).
I am pleased to be working in conjunction with the Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education (ACCME) and the American Medical Association (AMA) to ensure that guidelines and policies are followed to deliver effective continuing medical education activities. Our CME activities are developed to enhance physician competence, performance and/or patient outcomes. We rely on the involvement of our renowned faculty and Advisory Board for their professional expertise and support to create a relevant and interesting curriculum. We are very grateful to our faculty for their contributions to these successful activities.
Since the founding of the Einstein - Montefiore CCME Office in 1976, we have become one of the largest medical school-based CME Accredited Providers in the State of New York. In 2011, we sponsored and certified over 500 local, national, and international CME activities attended by over 114,800 physicians and 48,400 allied healthcare professionals. These activities consisted of live meetings, society meetings, grand rounds, and a variety of enduring materials that included CD-ROMs/DVDs, audio and videotapes, monographs, journal articles, supplements, and Internet activities.
CCME recognizes the need to evaluate and measure educational outcomes and it has become our focus. Currently, we are organizing training sessions to measure and interpret the effect of CME on physician performance and patient care. We will continue to research and implement innovative ways to track, evaluate and analyze all of our activities.
Please take a moment to peruse our website. You will be able to search our current CME activities by date or specialty and register on-line, take tests for enduring materials and print certificates. You will be able to view contact information for our dedicated staff and valuable information about CCME.
Thank you for visiting our site. We take pride in our commitment to Einstein and Montefiore. We look forward to meeting all of your continuing medical education needs. Please feel free to contact our office if you need additional information, have questions or suggestions for the future.
