Drawing on the world-class expertise of Stanford clinicians, scientists, and educators, Stanford CME offers a variety of educational activities and learning methods based on the setting, identified needs, desired results, and learning styles of the target audience.
Conferences & Workshops
Our conferences/workshops are designed to engage you in interactive learning sessions; provide the most up-to-date information and strategies; and develop or enhance skills that you may apply in clinical practice, research, or teaching.
Stanford connects you to the latest online educational offerings through multi-modal teaching. Learn best practices from world renowned faculty through videos, simulation role plays, demonstrations, case studies, panel discussions, and more. The new found knowledge and skills that you apply during courses will enable you to improve your practice.
Regularly Scheduled Series
Stanford offers our faculty, staff, and affiliates a wide variety of Grand Rounds, Case Conferences, Tumor Boards, Morbidity & Mortality Conferences, and Journal Clubs. Each series has a regular meeting time, date, and structure. Sessions are usually 1-2 hours in length and focus on clinical topics, research, case presentations, patient-physician communication, and other content that meets Stanford’s educational needs.
Immersive & Simulation Training
The Goodman Simulation Center, the Center for Immersive and Simulation-based Learning (CISL), and Center for Advanced Pediatric & Perinatal Education (CAPE) collaborate with Stanford faculty to provide CME workshops and simulations. The technology you experience includes high fidelity robotic mannequins and a variety of task trainers to improve your patients’ safety through practicing in an immersive and risk free environment.
Maintenance of Certification
The MOC structure assures that physicians are committed to lifelong learning and competency in a specialty or subspecialty. You will learn from our world renowned faculty who are pioneers in the field of simulation. Our MOC Part IV activities are patient-centered with an emphasis on professionalism, patient safety, and performance improvement.
CISL’s mission is to improve patient safety, patient care, education, and research through innovations in immersive and simulation-based learning techniques and tools. The Center serves as a bridge between classroom learning and real-life clinical experience.
Educational Technology focuses on supporting the School of Medicine with a variety of technologies and enhanced learning modalities. Its mission is to provide a highly coordinated set of educational planning and support services.
The Li Ka Shing Center for Learning and Knowledge exemplifies the future of medical education. Its use of cutting-edge technology advances a new model for educating doctors and scientists . Many of our CME activities are held here.
The SFDC provides teaching improvement workshops and consultations to basic science and clinical faculty, medical residents, and teaching assistants at Stanford University School of Medicine.
