Not only does the University of Kentucky Department of Neurology offer educational opportunities for students, residents and fellows, we offer continuing medical educational (CME) opportunities for fully-licensed physicians. There are many opportunities in our department to acquire CME credits either from attending our grand rounds or stroke conferences.
Continued Medical Education is regulated both by the Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education (ACCME) and the American Osteopathic Association. CME can be acquired through many mediums including live events, online programs, audio, video, or other types of electronic media.
These educational activities will utilize a multidisciplinary team of health care providers to provide state-of-the-art training in the diagnosis and management of dementia specifically targeting providers in Appalachia Kentucky.
