Continuing Education and Improvement (CEI)
This site serves to guide academic Continuing Medical Education leaders, planners, and teachers as they move CME from a primarily conference-based model to one which employs best educational methods and Quality Improvement (QI) and Performance Improvement (PI) principles to close the clinical care gap. The CEI home works to:
- Communicate news — Disseminate news about developments in the field by distributing a bi-weekly newsletter: CENews.
- Share resources — Connect to initiatives, tools, and sites helpful in CME planning, QI, PI, clinical outcomes, faculty development, and related research.
- Develop networks with our colleagues in medical schools of the United States and Canada, and in the U.S. teaching hospitals and academic societies.
