Continuing Medical Education

Our Mission

The Center for Continuing Medical Education strives to provide high-quality continuing medical education (CME) opportunities for physicians and health care providers. These activities are intended to improve competence, performance and/or overall patient outcomes.

It is our goal to meet the health care needs and improve the health status of people in the communities Norton Healthcare serves. By working with our comprehensive medical staff, our long commitment to quality, strategic partnerships and affiliations, Norton Healthcare is dedicated to serving as a regional leader in providing quality, certified continuing medical education. Our activities are built on a platform of scientifically sound evidence-based medicine, enhancing the provision of patient care.

Accreditation

Norton Healthcare is accredited by the Kentucky Medical Association to provide continuing medical education activities for physicians. Norton Healthcare strictly adheres to the Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education (ACCME) policies, accreditation criteria and standards for commercial support. We have received accreditation with commendation (the highest level) for a six-year term.

CME Team

The CME team’s goal is to implement and accredit continuing medical education activities that address professional gaps to improve physician competence, performance and knowledge.

In 2018, the Norton Healthcare Center for Continuing Medical Education provided a total of 455,656 hours of educational credits, including 1,105 AMA PRA Category 1 credit™ hours for physicians and various other types of credit hours for non-physician providers.
