Global Education Group Survey Reveals Importance of Continuing Medical Education

Globe Newswire (11/12/20)

The 2020 Continuing Medical Education Survey from Ultimate Medical Academy's Global Education Group highlights the desire among respondents for a post-pandemic return to in-person training opportunities. "While past data has indicated the efficacy of in-person instruction, the survey results show practitioners are eager to get back in the classroom and have an in-person learning experience," said John McCormick, the company's vice president of education strategy. Continuing medical education (CME) was the top reason for respondents making changes to their own medical practice, with 95% adopting information and practices learned in CME programming into their regular activities. Respondents also rated CME the most impactful method for improving patient care. Despite the lack of a nationwide mandate for ongoing educational engagements, 58% of respondents said they regularly participate in live or on-demand webcasts/webinars, and many also regularly engage in live multi-day conferences and local or regional meetings, when available. The survey, conducted in June and July of this year, was sent to more than 1,700 healthcare practitioners nationwide.
