The Committee on CME

The CME Planning Committee offers the highest quality educational programs for MCAAP members.  The last Annual Meeting on May 2nd focused exclusively on the pediatrician and health care reform. The ad hoc committee continues to work with other AAP Chapters and collaborates with other child health organizations in presenting CME programs throughout the state.  The year the MCAAP collaborated with Baystate Health to cosponsor immunization webinars and this year’s annual meeting. The Committee will be continuing to evaluate the use of e-learning and community learning groups to extend CME opportunities to members who are not able to attend live programming. The Committee would also like to aid our members in clarification and implementation of their personal Maintenance of Certification requirements. There is a great need for new committee members to keep our programming fresh.  All medical students, residents, young and senior physicians, and practicing and academic pediatricians are invited to join our meetings. The committee also relies greatly on member physicians to complete evaluations and needs assessments to develop programs that meet members’ needs.  The CME program continues to incorporate the expertise of MCAAP committees in educating the general membership on clinical issues, pediatric practice administration, and child advocacy.
