Types of CME Offerings
From grand rounds to seminars and conferences, we strive to provide VCU Health and the community with unlimited opportunities to continue to grow to improve practice and patient outcomes.
Affiliated Hospital Programs
VCU Health CME provides credit for programs managed by community hospitals throughout Virginia, and can also arrange for VCU faculty presentations. For more information, please contact Andrea Perseghin at firstname.lastname@example.org or 804-828-5412.
Clinical Refreshers, or Individual Learning Contracts (ILCs), are short term tutorials with a specified, individualized duration—usually of one-day to two weeks in duration. Each Clinical Refresher takes place in the VCU Health facilities. The understanding of skills to be attained is specified in an ILC developed between the visiting physician-learner and a selected faculty member. Learning opportunities may include working rounds and teaching rounds with house staff and attending physicians, ward experience, observation and didactic sessions.
For further information regarding Clinical Refreshers please contact John Boothby at email@example.com.
Enduring materials are printed or recorded instructional materials that may be used over a designated period of time at various locations, and constitute a planned continuing medical education activity. Examples of such materials include print, audio, video and online materials such as podcasts, CD-ROMs, DVDs, archived webinars. These may be used either alone or in combination with written materials for independent learning by physicians.
“Reference materials” such as books, journals and manuals are not considered enduring materials; VCU Health CME does not designate credit for individual journal articles.
For further information, contact John Boothby at firstname.lastname@example.org or 804-828-5410.
