Introduction

Hawai’i Consortium for Continuing Medical Education (HCCME) is accredited with commendation by the Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education and is responsible for the certification of activities for continuing medical education (CME) awarded through JABSOM’s Continuing Medical Education Committee.

It is the mission of Hawai’i Consortium for Continuing Medical Education to support delivery of the highest quality of patient care by educating current healthcare professionals and physician leaders in Hawai`i and the Asia-Pacific region. It believes that excellence and leadership in healthcare is accomplished through a continuum of medical education and to that end provides activities that are evidence-based, translational, in community partnerships and directed to improving the competence and performance of physicians and health of the community.

State legislation mandates evidence of CME as a requirement for licensure in Hawai‘i and there is increasing utility of CME by national medical specialty boards.  Within JABSOM, CME also serves as a vehicle for faculty and clinical faculty development.

HCCME is a joint partnership of JABSOM and Hawai`i Medical Association.  Administrative responsibility for the JABSOM program of CME rests with the Associate Dean for Medical Education.
