Clinical Excellence. Service to People. This has always been Hurley Medical Center’s mission, and it is the foundation of the educational mission for the Institute for Continuing Medical Education.
The Hurley Medical Center Institute for Continuing Medical Education is responsible for the identification of the educational needs and subsequent implementation of Continuing Medical Education activities for the physician population in mid-Michigan. Regularly scheduled educational programs, seminars, outreach, and joint sponsorship activities will be designed based upon physician need as identified through patient care audit, medical staff survey, and review of current literature (general, specialty and sub-specialty), as well as clinical research (allopathic and osteopathic). The Continuing Medical Education program will foster a stimulating academic environment through various methods, including direct/live courses, internet CME, enduring materials and performance improvement methodologies. Each and all of these activities will seek to maintain and enhance high levels of knowledge, skills, and professional medical performance as measured by pre- and post-tests and analytical review, application of knowledge, change in behavior, and practice and outcomes, thereby ensuring the continuance of high-quality care for the patient.
