The mission of the Office of Continuing Medical Education (CME) at WCUCOM is to deliver educational programs that provide knowledge to the faculty and medical community and to support the mission of WCUCOM. To achieve its mission, the Office of CME will identify and implement learning opportunities that will enhance the lifelong learning experience of its participants.
Educational activities serve to maintain, develop, or increase the knowledge, skills, and professional performance and relationships a physician uses to provide services for patients, the public, or the profession. CME represents that body of knowledge and skills generally recognized and accepted by the profession as within the basic medical sciences, the discipline of clinical medicine, and the provision of health care to the public.
The Office of CME strives to meet the following goals:
- Provide quality, evidence-based educational opportunities designed to enhance the skills and knowledge of physicians and other health professionals with an overall goal of improving the health outcomes of diverse patient populations
- Assist physicians and other health professionals in meeting their CME licensure requirements
WCUCOM is an AOA-CME Category I sponsor accredited by the American Osteopathic Association (AOA) Council on Continuing Medical Education (CCME) to present programs that qualify for AOA-CME category I credit.
