Continuing Medical Education (CME)
|Continuing Medical Education|
|The Hawai’i Consortium for Continuing Medical Education (HCCME) is accredited by the Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education to provide continuing medical education to physicians. As the school’s Office of CME, it is responsible for the administration and management of the certification program for JABSOM’s continuing medical education activities.
The mission of the HCCME, a joint venture of the Hawaiʻi Medical Association (HMA) and JABSOM, is to support the highest quality of patient care by educating current healthcare professionals and physician leaders in Hawaiʻi 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.
Legislation mandates evidence of CME as a requirement for licensure in Hawai‘i and there is increasing utility of CME for physician maintenance of certification by national specialty boards. CME equally serves as a vehicle for faculty development.
Administrative responsibility for the Office of CME rests with the Associate Dean of Medical Education.
