CME Overview

Continuing Medical Education Programs




The mission of the Continuing Medical Education Department at Flushing Hospital Medical Center is to provide physicians with educational programs that are designed to advance medical knowledge and clinical skills, while improving patient care. We aim to achieve the highest standard of education in order to keep up with the ever-evolving world of medicine and how it is practiced.

The CME Programs of the Flushing Hospital are intended for health care providers of all disciplines and includes a variety of formats, including lectures, journal club and interdisciplinary case conferences. CME programs also deal with issues identified in the hospital's CQI process addressing quality indicators.

The CME Committee ensures that planned programs cover subject areas in the breadth and depth appropriate for the intended audiences, and that programs are planned, administered, and evaluated in terms of relevant educational objectives.

Improvements to our CME programs are made after an evaluation of CME activities and self-assessment of the overall program. Flushing Hospital expects performance parameters within the setting of clinical practice to show improvement or a favorable impact on targeted patient outcomes.

Flushing Hospital's continuing medical education goals are fundamental and a highly valued building block of its mission to serve our patients and our community.

All courses are one hour in duration and offer one CME credit. All courses are free and open to all. No registration is required.
