Continued Medical Education at GBMC

Dedicated to providing state-of-the art programs that support the Medical Center's and physicians' efforts to enhance competence in patient care, expand medical knowledge, improve interpersonal and communication skills and system-based practices to the benefit of the patients

The Office of Continuing Medical Education at GBMC coordinates CME activities within the scope of our CME mission statement, maintains a database of accrued AMA PRA Category 1 Credit™, and provides credit transcripts upon request to members of GBMC medical staff. Weekly, monthly and one-time only activities are planned for the education of practicing physicians and allied health professionals in the Baltimore-region and surrounding areas.
