  • Overview

    Morehouse School of Medicine is dedicated to improving the health and well-being of individuals and communities; increasing the diversity of the health professional and scientific workforce; and addressing primary health care needs through programs in education, research, and service, with emphasis on people of color and the underserved urban and rural populations in Georgia and the nation. 

    In keeping with this mission, the Office of Extended Professional Education (OEPE) was established for the purpose of collaborating with faculty, clinical departments, community physicians and educators to identify educational needs and then implement activities to address these needs. 

    The Office of Extended Professional Education offers a hands-on approach to program development and education for both accredited and non-accredited activities, as well as total meeting management services. 

    Accreditation

    Morehouse School of Medicine is accredited by the Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education to sponsor continuing medical education for physicians. The Committee on Continuing Medical Education (CME), established by the Academic Policy Council of MSM, provides a continuing medical education program that improves the physician's ability to provide quality care. The school's mission serves as the basis for the development of the CME program. Priority is given, but is not limited to primary care medicine related to the underserved populations.

    CME offerings are delivered using traditional formats (seminars, short courses, workshops and Internet) locally, nationally and internationally. Regularly Scheduled Series (RSS), which include grand rounds, also are sponsored by MSM clinical departments. The primary target audience includes MSM clinical faculty, community and other physicians, residents, nurses, allied health professionals and medical students. In addition, the EPE Office collaborates with other institutions that are not accredited as CME providers. These collaborations are referred to as joint sponsorships.
