Continuing Medical Education

At the University of Chicago, our physicians are excited about sharing the latest clinical and research findings with you through continuing medical education (CME).

Throughout the year, our physicians conduct CME courses conveniently scheduled at hotels along the Magnificent Mile in Chicago, in the surrounding suburbs, at the University of Chicago Medical Center, and at resort locations. You can learn about the most recent clinical advances happening here and in other leading centers around the world. The courses highlight innovative procedures and technologies, examine current controversies in treatment, and update you on the latest advances in the understanding and treatment of disease.
