CME & PD Mission

The mission of the University of Louisville Continuing Medical Education and Professional Development program (CME & PD) is to facilitate the needs of physicians and other healthcare team members as they seek self-improvement through life-long learning. By guiding the development and accreditation of courses that address evidence-based medical practice and expert opinion, our goals of providing opportunities for positive changes in professional competence, personal performance and medical outcomes in patient care will be met.

CME & PD Purpose

A cornerstone educational purpose of the University of Louisville School of Medicine is to "provide high quality continuing medical education in an environment of lifelong learning." Further, the School of Medicine has a "mandated statewide mission to meet the educational, research, and patient care needs of the Commonwealth of Kentucky and an urban mission to meet the needs of Louisville..."* CME & PD, in collaboration with our medical community which includes UofL Physicians, the School of Medicine clinical and biomedical science departments, the UofL Hospital, KentuckyOne Health, the Robley Rex Veteran's Administration Hospital, Ireland Community Army Hospital, and the Area Health Education Centers of Kentucky, seeks to identify and address professional clinical practice gaps and life-long educational needs. CME & PD offers consultation for the design, delivery, and evaluation of CME programming, and will accredit and document those continuing medical education activities in support of physician life-long learning requirements. Further, CME & PD will provide services as a joint-provider for national and international entities that pursue similar goals of meeting physician CME learning opportunities.
