The Office of Continuing Medical Education (CME) at the Northwestern University Feinberg School of Medicine is the accredited provider for the McGaw Hospitals. We facilitate the development, implementation, and evaluation of education activities and ensure Feinberg activities comply with the Essentials and Standards of the Accreditation Council of Continuing Medical Education (ACCME).
We are part of the Department of Medical Education, the department that centralizes much of the educational programming, innovation, and scholarship at Feinberg and its affiliated institutions.
The Office of Continuing Medical Education's mission is to improve physician knowledge and competency and enhance performance in practice by providing activities on cutting-edge research and technological advancements. We strive to objectively present up-to-date, clinically relevant, scientifically rigorous, evidence-based medical information in order to promote excellence in medical care and patient safety.
The content areas of the CME activities are comprehensive, including primary care, cardiovascular, rehabilitation, pediatrics, and specialty and sub-specialty topics in all fields of medicine. The majority of activities focus on clinical updates and latest research across all therapeutic areas. All content is expected to be based on the best evidence currently available from basic medical science, clinical medicine, or public health fields and to be free of commercial interest and bias.
Activities emphasize desirable physician attributes as identified by ACGME/ABMS and IOM core competencies.
There are two audience-based focuses of the Feinberg's CME Program, activities designated for Feinberg-affiliated health care professionals (accounting for more than 70 percent of credits issued) and activities designated for non-Feinberg health care professionals.
