Meeting the Educational Needs of Health Care Professionals
Lake Erie College of Osteopathic Medicine is dedicated to the philosophy of osteopathic medicine, which is a comprehensive approach to health care and the prevention of disease. An integral part of the college’s mission is to carry on educational activities related to rendering care to the sick and injured, as well as the promotion of health. The Continuing Medical Education Department has an essential part in the college mission and is committed to providing the resources and facilities necessary to provide medical education opportunities to the physicians of our community.
In support of its mission, and as one of our goals, LECOM, through the CME Department, will provide quality cost effective continuing education programs for its local regional and graduate physicians. Other goals of the Continuing Medical Education Programs are to maintain and enhance excellence in patient care through our programs; provide program management and coordination to the course director; and provide library and audiovisual services as needed.
LECOM’s Continuing Medical Education Programs are planned with Primary Care physicians in mind. Occasionally, programs directed to the physician sub-specialists are sponsored according to the needs assessment. The types of activities are determined through established procedures to identify needs and interests to physicians.
Lake Erie College of Osteopathic Medicine’s Continuing Medical Education Program is dedicated to its mission. The programs are evaluated and modified continuously to ensure quality CME programs. Each program is organized and directed in accordance with current continuing medical education guidelines.
The American Osteopathic Medical Association has accredited the Lake Erie College of Osteopathic Medicine as a category 1 Continuing Medical Education Sponsor.
