Overview

Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine Office of Continuing Medical Education strives to provide up-to-date clinical and research information in appropriate educational formats so that participants are able to improve their knowledge, skills, attitudes, behaviors, and the clinical outcomes for their patients.


The vision of OCME is to provide physicians and other health care professionals' exemplary, cutting-edge educational endeavors that teach evidence-based practices and identify new and emerging health care needs and opportunities from research through delivery of care so that, through education, we can significantly improve health.


Our goals are:


  • To present new knowledge and its application to various levels of health care and disease prevention
  • Based on the needs of audiences of health care professionals, provide educational activities targeted to specific physician/team audiences to keep their knowledge and skills at the highest possible levels commensurate with the standards of excellence at Johns Hopkins
  • To increase OCME's capabilities to understand and measure the needs of its diverse physician audiences through increased research in educational needs and outcomes
  • To partner with other distinguished organizations and institutions, under the clinical and scientific guidance of the Johns Hopkins faculty, to offer educational activities to regional, national, and international medical communities that expand the reach and contribution of the Johns Hopkins clinical and scientific faculty
  • To develop and evaluate new educational tools employing emerging technologies to bring biomedical knowledge and delivery of health care to physicians worldwide
  • To meet or exceed the Essential Areas and Policies of the Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education (ACCME) and the guidelines of the American Medical Association's Physician Recognition Award


Our program consists of educational activities which serve to maintain, develop, or increase the knowledge, skills, and professional performance and relationships that a physician uses to provide services for patients, the public or the profession. It includes primary care, specialty, and subspecialty topics in the field of medicine. The content of CME is the body of knowledge and skills generally recognized and accepted by the profession as within the basic medical sciences, the discipline of clinical medicine, and the provision of health care to the public.

We target all physicians and other health care professionals, locally, nationally and globally. OCME sponsors conferences and workshops, including hands-on and skills-training, distance education by telephone, podcasts, webinar, personal computer, and other innovative and interactive formats.


As a result of these educational activities, we foster the continuing professional development of health care professionals. Our offerings are intended to enhance physician and other health care professionals training in a manner that will positively affect professional knowledge with the goal of improving patient care. OCME is committed to reassessing the impact our program and activities have on an ongoing basis through qualitative and quantitative methods to ensure that these goals are met.
