Continuing Medical Education (CME)
The Continuing Medical Education (CME) Program is accredited by the Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education. Nationwide Children's offers over 1,000 Category 1 CME sessions annually, ranging from weekly activities to research and clinical symposia. Internet-based videos and other electronic educational materials are available as well. Annually, 15 to 25 visiting professors supplement the high quality education provided by faculty from The Ohio State University pediatrics and surgical departments.
Some particularly noteworthy CME efforts include the Medical Leadership Program, a monthly leadership seminar for physicians; Pediatric Pearls, an annual update of primary care topics; and the Faculty Development Series, a multi-faceted curriculum for office and hospital-based physician educators.
All members of the medical staff who participate in CME activities can review their Category 1 credits online through the CME Transcript Center. Other physician participants receive certificates for each activity.
