Tips and Strategies for Managing and Administering a Continuing Education Program

By: Steven Kawczak, Ph.D., Director, Professional Development, Cleveland Clinic, 2017 Alliance Vice President

Managing and administering a continuing education (CE) program for healthcare professionals takes a unique skill set. It requires skills in continuing education, in management and leadership, which is a distinct combination of competencies. Planning CE activities or maintaining an education program have many complexities and take significant resources. Content experts — no matter how brilliant or in tune with emerging science, gaps in practice or educational needs — cannot effect the development and implementation of educational content without the support of CE professionals who can manage CE activities or administer an educational program that provides mechanisms for disseminating content and an infrastructure to manage the learning.
