Education Division

Continuing Medical Education (CME) Program

The Division of Education currently offers attendance-based CME programs, and is in the process of creating CME offerings available for distance applications, including Web-based opportunities. Other programs in development include future video-teleconferencing (VTC)-based conferences which will include the potential for interactive conferencing and distance consultation.

CME may also be offered through the Army and Navy for clinical and departmental educational events, separate from USU-sponsored events.

Course offerings and descriptions, accreditation statements, information regarding accessing the programs, information regarding the process for obtaining CME, and registration information, where applicable, are included in the individual course descriptions.

The USUHS Advanced Gynecological Surgery with Hands-On Cadaver and Laparoscopic Animal Laboratories will be held in August or September 2013 (dates to be determined).
