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 identifies educational needs of physicians and other health care providers of mid-Michigan, takes initiative to meet these needs through a variety of educational methods including scheduling regularly scheduled educational programs, seminars, outreach, and joint provider activities. The identification of educational needs are made through medical staff survey, review of current literature (general, specialty and sub-specialty), and advice and suggestions by healthcare regulatory bodies, 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, practice and outcomes; stimulate and encourage new innovations thereby, ensuring the continuance of high quality care for the patient.
