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.
To receive CENews, subscribe to the Listerve.

News and Updates
Pre-Proposal Deadline: March 3, 2014—The AAMC Group on Educational Affairs (GEA) and its four regions present a new National Grant Program seeking proposals that foster collaboration among GEA sections (UGME, GME, CEI, MESRE), regions (WGEA, NEGEA, SGEA, CGEA), and/or health professions. Proposals on such topics as inter-professional education, innovations in faculty development, implications across the training continuum of the transition to accountable care in general—and the implementation of the Affordable Care Act in particular, and curricular innovations such as competency-based education, entrustable professional activities, milestones, and creative approaches to delivery of education (flipped classroom, MOOCs, simulations, etc.), are encouraged.
