Continued medical education (CME), is the idea that as a medical practitioner, you are never done learning. There are a variety of different continued medical conference topics including facility management conferences, educational methodology conferences, medical services conferences, and financial practice conferences. Regardless of the scope of the conference, or the conferences focus, it is seen as an added benefit for bother medical professionals, and the patients that they treat, to always be optimizing their practice, making it more efficient and effective in providing medical care.
As a health care provider, Grandmaster Stanley Ngui saw the importance of continuing medical education, being why he has developed an integrative medicine training course for medical professionals who seek to widen their knowledge-base. In today’s blog post we will be discussing some of the benefits that continued medical education can provide to medical professionals — particularly that of general care providers.
Why Are CME Courses Important?
As we have discussed above, continued medical education is simply a blanket term for a program that aids healthcare providers in expanding, or updating, their knowledge-base. While there is a clear definition for what continued medical education is, it has a rather wide scope meaning that the topics of a conference can be anything from financial management of medical practices to integrative medical training to holistic medicine courses. While continuous medical education has a rather broad definition, it is still an extremely valuable resource for general care providers. For general care providers, the added benefit that they receive from the broad scope of continued medical education courses is that there are hundreds of options annually — allowing them to find, and focus on, whatever course would benefit them or their office the most. Yes, some medical care providers need more help on the financial side of their practice, but others actively seek to provide their patients with less-invasive and alternative health care techniques. But what are some ways that general care providers can continue their medical education?
Methods Of Education
For general care providers, there are multiple ways that continuing medical education courses can be completed — and this level of flexibility is good, as health care professionals might be at different points in their career. Some medical professionals may be at the head of a practice, allowing for them to take a long weekend to attend a medical conference. Others, however, might be fresh out of medical school, making attending a conference in person impossible. Below, we have listed the three most common forms of CME conferences, as well as the added benefits and shortcomings of each.
Online Courses – Online medical conferences are an excellent tool for medical professionals to “attend” medical conferences when they have a busy schedule. Additionally, online CME conferences can be specially tailored to each individual medical care provider’s individual learning requirements. While online continuing medical education conferences are a beneficial tool for the busy medical care provider, it does not offer intensive, or hands-on, interaction with the instructor of the conference, making it hard for the attendee to troubleshoot or problem solve when they are unclear of a topic.
Traditional Lectures – Traditional lectures are a beneficial course style for the medical care provider that has the capacity to take time off and attend a conference in person. Traditional lectures can be more engaging than online lectures because you are physically in the room with the speaker rather than simply looking at a screen. While engaging, traditional lectures have been found to not necessarily coerce the attendee to actually implement change within their day-to-day operations after attendance.
Practicum Courses – The third, and arguably most effective, form of CME conference is the practicum-style course. Why is this the most effective method in fostering information retention? Well, to put it simply, it is hands-on. While lectures still exist in this method of continuous medical education, it allows for those in attendance to practice the materials that they have learned shortly after learning it — allowing for better information retention.
While all three methods of education are beneficial, each has their own added benefits and deficits, meaning that in the end, it is up to the medical care provider to decide what method is best for them!
