Live CME activities take place at a specified date, time and location. Our continuing education mission is to optimize patient care. To this end, our programs are designed to provide the most up-to-date information and strategies for physicians and allied health professionals.
The Harvard Medical School Department of Continuing Education offers a variety of distance learning formats for CME activities. CME Online, our largest distance learning initiative, is comprised of case-based, interactive activities that learners can access on demand. Other distance learning programs include webcasts, DVDs, and innovative, virtual events. Our distance learning program enables HMS Faculty to come to the homes and offices of health care professionals, helping make the pursuit of lifelong learning accessible and affordable to learners around the world.
RSS are activities (e.g. grand rounds) that are planned as a series with multiple sessions that occur on an ongoing basis (at least quarterly), are primarily planned by and presented to HMS’s affiliated hospitals’ and research institutions’ staff, and focus on content of immediate importance to hospital/institution staff. Each session is usually 1-2 hours in length.
