Continuing Medical Education

A vibrant continuing medical education program is vital to supporting a teaching/learning environment in the hospital, and the IMH is responsible for coordinating two weekly CME programs at Saint Patrick Hospital. The Friday Medical Conference series at 7:30am at St. Patrick Hospital is webcast and can be shared with twenty-five different sites in real-time over an internet connection. This program is shown at Community Medical Center at the same time via the internet connection. On Thursday morning at 7:30am there is a journal club with presentations from hospitalists, pharmacists, internists, medical students and PAs talking about topics of interest in the current medical literature. A list of journal club presenters and web links for Friday Medical Conference topics can be obtained from, or call (406)327-3162.
