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.
For over 37 years, Continuing Medical Education (CME) programs conducted by Apollo Hospitals have been the most sought-after for updating clinical knowledge. We are committed to keeping clinical staff and medical practitioners up-to-date with the latest trends, knowledge, procedures and technology. At Apollo Hospitals, we offer convenient, clinically relevant continuing education resources using some of our renowned specialists from various feilds of medicine.
In line with our pursuit of excellence in medical research and education, Apollo Hospitals initiated Apollo Knowledge Series (AKS). AKS is a significant step towards redefining medical education and fostering continuing professional development of medical professionals. It is committed to share a wealth of knowledge with doctors, nurses, and other health care professionals, locally, nationally and globally. The aim of Apollo Knowledge Series (AKS) is to provide innovative, high-quality educational programs that increases the knowledge of health care providers, leading to improved patient outcomes
