Continuing Medical Education

The Saint Thomas Health (STH) Continuing Medical Education (CME) Department is committed to improving patient care outcomes by developing innovative continuing education activities that promote quality improvements in clinical practice, lifelong learning, and provide spiritually-centered, holistic care to the communities we serve.

Saint Thomas Health is accredited by the Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education to provide continuing medical education for physicians.
