Continuing Medical Education

North Mississippi Medical Center's Medical Staff has charged the Continuing Medical Education Program, led by the Continuing Medical Education Committee, to dedicate itself to developing and providing a formal CME Program. This program identifies educational needs and intended results that support the NMHS mission: to continuously improve the health of the people of our region.

The NMHS CME program accomplishes this by implementing activities aligned to meet the needs of provider education focused on improving the health outcomes of the people of the region.

The NMHS CME Program’s vision is to be the provider of choice for Continuing Medical Education for all providers in north Mississippi. NMHS' CME Program initiates ways to help area providers improve their education by offering high quality continuing medical education locally.

CME programs focus on outcomes driven, multiple hour activities that will involve an interdisciplinary approach to disease process management.
