Participants/Learners


The Office of CME at the Perelman School of Medicine at the University of Pennsylvania develops CME activities for physicians and other healthcare professionals across the full range of medical specialties and subspecialties. Most educational activities developed through the OCME are designed for practicing physicians providing a continuum of care from primary through tertiary and rehabilitative medicine. The majority of participants in regularly scheduled series and live courses are local and regional from the Tri-State area (i.e., Pennsylvania, New Jersey, and Delaware). However, most of our online activities and larger conferences are designed for national and international audiences. Participants may include research faculty, staff (including residents, fellows, and medical students), nurses and other healthcare providers in team- and system-based learning.

You can review a listing of our activities organized by major formats. We welcome your participation and registration.

As an ACCME accredited provider of CME activities, we provide the AMA PRA Category 1 Credit™ for most of our CME activities.

For information about the types of credit and requirements, please consult the AMA information on The Physician's Recognition Award and credit system: Information for accredited providers and physicians
