Continuing Medical Education

PinnacleHealth’s Continuing Medical Education (CME) department serves the needs of our integrated health care delivery system.

Accredited by the Pennsylvania Medical Society since 1984, we sponsor CME programs for PinnacleHealth physicians, community and affiliated physicians, residents and other health care providers that cover a variety of topics, including:

  • Primary care
  • Medicine
  • Pediatrics
  • Surgery
  • Cardiology
  • Patient safety
  • Confidentiality
  • Legal aspects of medicine

Our staff provide conferences, seminars, workshops, Intranet materials and jointly sponsored activities. Our CME department also coordinates an annual Medical Education Day conference for PinnacleHealth employees.

CME outcomes are measured by assessing the use of disease management protocols, improvement in quality of care and patient satisfaction.
