A Message from Dr. Robert Malcolm
Associate Dean for Continuing Medical Education
Welcome to the Medical University of South Carolina Office of Continuing Medical Education. MUSC CME activities provide evidence-based information and practice strategies for health care professionals in our state, region and nation. Addressing new health care needs with “laboratory to bedside” information provided through continuing medical education will impact the level of improved health outcomes in our state and region.
We offer continuing medical education activities that include conferences, workshops, symposia, regularly scheduled series (grand rounds, case conferences, tumor boards, journal clubs, and M&Ms), academic detailing, and online enduring materials. These activities cover all areas of medicine. Through a variety of delivery methods, our CME activities engage learners with interactive, innovative, expert teaching in an adult learning environment. Evidence-based practices, quality improvement processes, new learning platforms such as simulation laboratories, more online learning, maintenance of board certification, and the integration of continuing medical education into undergraduate medical education are all themes to look for in future MUSC CME activities. These are exciting and innovative times for continuing medical education.
