Continuing Medical Education
Not only does the University of Kentucky Department of Neurology offer educational opportunities for students, residents and fellows, we offer continuing medical educational (CME) opportunities for fully-licensed physicians. There are many opportunities in our department to acquire CME credits either from attending our grand rounds or child conferences.
Continued medical education is regulated both by the Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education (ACCME) and the American Osteopathic Association. CME can be acquired through many mediums including live events, online programs, audio, video, or other types of electronic media.
