    Not Your Grandma's CME:
    Continuing Professional Development, Quality, and the Integration of the Academic Medical Enterprise

    This presentation is open to all interested Jefferson faculty and staff and will include timely information important across the whole continuum of medical education and the academic medical center. Issues facing national and local health systems, the nature and scope of quality improvement efforts that are needed, and how to apply new approaches to continuing education in keeping with AAMC's experience with its Education for Quality initiatives will be discussed. A question and answer period will follow.

    At the conclusion of the session, participants should be able to:

    • Articulate the size and scope of the 'clinical care gap' that faces the nation and local health systems
    • Define the nature and scope of 'quality improvement' related to the gap
    • Apply the principles of effective educational programs aimed at improving health care, based on AAMC's experience with its Educating for Quality programs and national initiatives

In addition, he is recognized as a seminal author in the field.
