Continuing Medical Education
Welcome to Truman Medical Centers’ Department of Continuing Medical Education Website. Nationally accredited by the Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education, our goal is to present the latest information gained from current research for physicians and other healthcare providers and to help them translate that new knowledge into their everyday practice. The ultimate beneficiaries of the Continuing Medical Education program are the participants’ patients.
Truman Medical Centers sponsor various learning opportunities for medical professionals. We work in collaboration with the clinical departments of Truman Medical Centers and other health-related organizations, including our affiliated Medical School, the University of Missouri – Kansas City. Sponsored activities are targeted to physicians around the world who practice within the specialties recognized by the American Medical Association. Recognizing the benefits to be gained from interdisciplinary forums, Truman Medical Centers’ Continuing Medical Education activities are available, as appropriate, to other healthcare professionals, residents and students.
Truman Medical Centers’ Continuing Medical Education activities include specialty topic areas of General Internal Medicine and its subspecialties, Emergency Medicine, Obstetrics and Gynecology, Ophthalmology, Surgery, and Radiology. Non-clinical educational topics include Ethics, Diversity, Computer Technology, Teaching Medical Students and Research. Faculty conducting Continuing Medical Education activities include highly respected physicians from local universities, well-renowned educators from many of the country’s prestigious academic entities and higher education academies around the world.
