Continuing Medical Education

The mission of the Continuing Medical Education (CME) Program, as part of the Joint Accreditation Program Office, is to assist health care professionals in the translation, diffusion, and application of evidence-based knowledge to specifically improve clinical care and enhance patient safety. The Joint Accreditation program seeks to distill complex research and medical information into formats useful to physicians, scientists, and health care workers to promote implementation of that information in the health care setting. The Duke University Health System Department of Clinical Education and Professional Development (CEPD) designates all types of activities: live presentations, online education, simulation, medical games, and enduring materials (monographs, DVD, etc). The Duke University Health System Department of Clinical Education and Professional Development (CEPD) provides educational programs inclusive of medicine, nursing, pharmacy, and other healthcare providers.
