Purpose: The continuing medical education mission of UMMS is to improve the well-being and health status of the people of Massachusetts, the United States and certain other nations by offering educational programs for medical trainees and providers that will improve their clinical competence. It is also our intent to review, and where appropriate, incorporate into UMMS educational programs innovative approaches developed and tested by other CME providers. In addition the UMMS OCME will take the initiative to develop its own innovative approaches to medical education in subject areas where we have the greatest competence.
