School of Medicine

Quality and Lifelong Learning


Mission


We develop, evaluate, and disseminate educational programs for health care professionals that foster quality health care. We strive to increase knowledge of evidence-based medicine and the implementation of clinical safety and effectiveness in an environment supportive of interprofessional education. This allows us to provide the highest level of safe care to our patients while optimizing the collaboration of our health care professionals.


Vision


The Continuing Medical Education Office will be an accessible and effective resource for faculty, alumni, and the community at large that builds a bridge to quality health care through lifelong learning and performance improvement. As a result, we will increase the quality of care for our patients, enhance patients' referral from the community, improve efficiency, and increase patient and staff satisfaction.
