Using CME as an “Engine of Transformation”


Publications in MedEdPORTAL include tutorials, virtual patients, cases, lab manuals, assessment instruments, faculty development materials covering from undergraduate, graduate, and continuing medical and dental education - and each of them can meet CME and quality improvement goals. MedEdPORTAL has sizable potential for CME providers, teachers, quality managers and others: 1) as a source of material for presentations; 2) as an opportunity to publish high quality, peer reviewed materials developed in CME settings; 3) as a possible revenue source for on-line materials; and 4) as a peer reviewed scholarly contribution suitable to support promotion and tenure decisions.
