The Program in Continuing Medical Education is a major component of the educational programs at The MetroHealth System. The purpose of The MetroHealth System CME Program is to provide a variety of high quality educational activities that will support, facilitate, expand the knowledge of developments and research, as well as keep our staff up-to-date on medical standards and technical advances in patient care and biomedical research. This will aid physicians in providing and improving the quality of patient care and medical outcomes throughout The MetroHealth System and the community we serve.
