Continous Medical Education

Health care is evolving rapidly, with new techniques, scientific information, protocols and technologies. To keep abreast with these changes, doctors have to keep learning all through their professional lives. For doctors, education does not end after medical college and residency training. This lifelong study and learning is called Continuing Medical Education or CME.

Participation in CME programs may involve a variety of educational experiences to keep doctors up to date in their area of specialization. It is important for doctors to attend CME programs regularly as it helps them adopt evidence-based medical practice. CME programs can change how doctors practice and help medical specialists embrace new ways to take care of their patients, especially those with chronic medical conditions.
