Federal Health Care Educators

About the Federal Health Care Educators Member Section:

The purpose of the Federal Health Care Educators Member Section is to assist CME providers in addressing the needs created by changes in federal health care delivery, as well as in the CME world. The section meeting provides an opportunity for federal educators to discuss common issues, goals and challenges that effect CME and examine areas for common/joint ventures to strengthen professional education in government settings.

Participants will:

• Review and discuss the latest changes, issues and learner needs in federal settings,
• Discuss opportunities to share and leverage resources, products and activities that have already been developed,
• Discuss partnering among government agencies to reduce or eliminate redundancies with regard to educational activities and products, by joint development or sharing of educational activities.

Target Audience / Background of Members:

All federal providers of Continuing Medical Education including educators from Veterans Affairs, Department of Defense, PHS, NIH, and Bureau of Prisons. While the focus is on those who develop education for healthcare members in US federal settings, those who share interests in CME from government communities around the world are welcome.
