Continuing medical education

Our continuing medical education provides physicians and healthcare professionals fundamental assets to maintain quality and patient safety. Through grand rounds sessions, ACCME-accredited courses and multidisciplinary conferences, we are helping to prep medical professionals for the ever-changing industry.

The Northwell Health Department of Family Medicine has monthly sessions to provide free CME credits at various locations throughout the region. Each session is worth 3 hours of CME. The sessions are based on Knowledge Self-Assessment (KSA), part 4 modules. They are also sometimes based on other informational presentations (ICD-10, PCMH-patient centered medical home). Sessions are interactive and informative. Topics are chosen based on surveys of the membership, along with those topics which are timely and necessitate providing new information to the membership.

Interprofessional education

Quality health care does not happen in a silo. Beginning in 2012, the Family Medicine Residency Program at Southside Hospital began to open grand rounds sessions to include other healthcare professionals from the hospital.

During our interprofessional grand rounds, actual cases are presented in a classroom setting and participants discuss how to handle the management of the case.

A survey of the participants found this new grand round format resulted in increased post-session knowledge and skills, and almost 60 percent change in clinical practice.
