Letter From Vic Hatcher

Welcome to the Website from the Albert Einstein College of Medicine-Montefiore Medical Center, The Center for Continuing Professional Development (CCPD).

I am pleased to be working in conjunction with the Joint Accreditation for Interprofessional Continuing Education and the American Medical Association (AMA) to ensure that guidelines and policies are followed to deliver effective continuing education activities. Our continuing professional development (CPD) 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 CCPD Office in 1976, we have become one of the largest medical school-based CPD Accredited Providers in the State of New York. In 2018, we sponsored and certified over 600 local, national, and international CPD activities, attended by over 45,000 physicians and 30,000 allied healthcare professionals. These activities consisted of live meetings, society meetings, grand rounds, and a variety of enduring materials that included journal articles, supplements, and internet activities.

CCPD recognizes the need to evaluate and measure educational outcomes and it has become our focus. Currently, we are measuring and interpreting the effect of CPD 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 CPD activities by date or specialty and register online. You will be able to view contact information for our dedicated staff and valuable information about CCPD.

Thank you for visiting our site. We take pride in our commitment to Einstein. We look forward to meeting all of your continuing education needs. Please feel free to contact our office if you need additional information, have questions or suggestions for the future.
