‌Welcome

The Division of Continuing Medical Education at Loyola University Chicago Stritch School of Medicine exists to facilitate and promote the process of lifelong learning – a process that should help healthcare professionals at all stages of their professional development to acquire the knowledge, attitude and skills necessary for contemporary medical practice.

Our CME program sees its purpose as providing high-quality, evidence-based educational opportunities that are designed to advance physician competence, enhance practice performance, promote patient safety, and where possible, improve patient outcomes in the populations served by the healthcare providers we educate. 

The vision of our CME program is to be a catalyst, advocate for, and a provider of education that promotes change, development and improvement.  We strive to model behaviors that place a premium on quality improvement to successfully communicate this message and practice to our educators and learners.

Loyola University, Stritch School of Medicine is accredited by the Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education to provide continuing medical education for physicians through November 30, 2022.
