Association of American Medical Colleges Tomorrow's Doctors, Tomorrow's Cures®

The CEI Section of the Group on Educational Affairs (GEA) comprises several thousand faculty members in the United States and Canada who are engaged in:

  • Teaching practicing health professionals
  • Planning and evaluating programs
  • Developing and studying innovations which extend beyond formal short courses to interventions characterized as "translational"
  • Scholarship, extending beyond educational research to include population health, outcomes, and health services research

Increasingly, our members demonstrate commitment to quality and performance improvement activities and faculty development.

Continuing Education and Improvement (CEI)

The CEI site attempts 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 site includes links to resources, meetings, publications, quality measures, and other means to plan and evaluate programming.
