Continuing Medical Education

The Commitment of the St. Vincent's Continuing Medical Education (CME) program is to provide practicing physicians with high quality educational experiences that impart new knowledge, teach new skills, review techniques and develop physician-patient relationships.

All CME activities will be scientifically accurate, provide a balanced perspective, and be consistent with the ethical guidelines and standards of educational excellence.

  • Content Areas

    The content areas of the CME activities will be structured for knowledge acquisition as well as reinforcement of basic science skills and the disciplines of clinical medicine generally recognized and accepted by the medical profession.

  • Target Audiences

    Because of the breadth of knowledge and expertise of its medical staff, St. Vincent’s has the academic resources to offer CME activities in many areas of medicine. We are committed to designing educational activities to meet the needs of primary care and specialty care physicians. CME activities are created for the medical staff of St. Vincent’s but are open to all medical staff members in Jacksonville and the surrounding community.

  • Type Of Activities

    Educational activities provided through the CME program are acceptable for the American Medical Association’s Physician Recognition Award (AMA PRA) Category 1 credit hours. These activities include grand rounds, workshops, conferences, symposiums, visiting professor lectures, including online CME course.

    St. Vincent’s will jointly sponsor CME activities with non-accredited organizations provided the activities are consistent with the St. Vincent’s Mission and the CME Statement of Commitment.

  • Expected Results

    St. Vincent’s will evaluate the effectiveness of its CME Program for evidence of improved patient care outcomes, improved medical staff practice patterns, cost reduction and lower morbidity/mortality rates.
