Continuing Medical Education (CME)
Several streams of CME are supported by the Mission Division.
Utilising the videoconferencing suite provided by Fraser Health, the Division is supporting member registration fees for the University of British Columbia’s CPD program entitled “CME on the Run”. The sessions are delivered on Friday afternoons at Mission Memorial Hospital and we welcome Doctors and Nurse Practitioners from other cities, too.
Also by video conference, the UBC CPD “Rural Rounds” is delivered to a breakfast meeting of Division members and other medical staff from Mission Memorial Hospital. The Division pays the modest registration fees. The third use of the video conference facility enables the Division’s members and others to join the weekly grand round sessions held at the larger Abbotsford Regional Hospital.
And last, but by no means least, the Division works with service providers to develop small CME groups to provide refreshers and updates on a wide range of topical issues.
The Division’s delivery of regularly scheduled high quality education, combined with the use of facilities by Fraser Health, has led to the development of a thoroughly collegial environment.
