CME & PD Advisory Board

Your CME & PD Advisory Board is made of faculty and staff representing the breadth of departments in the medical school as well as representatives from our constituent partners including the U of L Hospital, Jewish Hospital, and the VA Medical Center. Each physician board member reviews as many as ten CME course applications each year and attends our semi-annual planning and development meetings. The meetings of the Advisory Board are open to any interested member of the medical community. Contact our office for date/time/location of upcoming meetings.
