CME Programs

NYM Staff

The physicians at NYM recognize that maintaining the medical knowledge and skills necessary to care for patients is a critical ongoing and dynamic process. We believe that identifying and organizing an adequate response to these educational needs emanate from a self-imposed will to excel and deliver the best available medical care.

CME Mission Statement

The physician community of New York Methodist Hospital recognizes that maintaining the medical knowledge and skills necessary to care for patients is a critical ongoing and dynamic process. Educational needs can be expected to develop and change consistent with current evidence based practice and in response to emerging technology, information, and new standards of performance improvement. Our community believes that identifying and organizing an adequate response to these educational needs emanate from a self-imposed will to excel and deliver the best available medical care.

Our objective is to maintain a program of continuing medical education that enables our physicians to achieve these goals.

The community recognizes that during these efforts, professionalism, ethics, performance, competence, patient outcomes and confidentiality (of patients data) are paramount. The community also aims at maintaining fusion of its mission with that of the Hospital, especially as pertains to education, training and creating an environment hospitable to intelligent and scholarly solutions for better patient care and for the benefit of all. Some of the critical components of CME, such as interaction with industry and market are being incorporated in the corporate policies.

We would also consider extending CME mission support to outside educators in other hospitals or medical societies as appropriate.
