Mission

The Warren Alpert Medical School Office of Continuing Medical Education (Brown CME) supports the professional development of our faculty, staff and local, national and international healthcare providers with the goal of improving their competence, performance or patient outcomes within the communities they serve.  

The Brown CME program provides education in a broad range of clinical disciplines, addresses local and national public health priorities, promotes interdisciplinary education and practice, and supports our faculty in their role as educators in the classroom and at the bedside. Our engagement in strategic collaborations with multiple stakeholders, including faculty and affiliated hospital systems, the Rhode Island Department of Health, Rhode Island Medical Society, and many other local/national healthcare agencies, help us to stay abreast of local and global healthcare issues.

Founded on practice gaps and needs of our audience, educational activities deliver current, relevant, evidence-based and unbiased content. Various teaching / learning formats are used to achieve the highest level of learning retention and improvement of our audience. Tools used to assess changes in our learners’ competence or performance and patient or public health outcomes include immediate post-activity evaluations, 2-6 month follow-up outcomes surveys, case based assessments, and informal feedback. Brown CME conducts an extensive review of its evaluation questions and process yearly in an effort to glean the most significant information needed to best assess our activities and overall program mission.

  • Integrity and Accountability
  • Collaboration
  • Creativity and Innovation
  • Excellence
