Continuing Professional Development

The purpose of our Continuing Professional Development program is to provide high quality evidence-based educational opportunities that advance knowledge, skills, and performance of physicians to enhance their ability to provide excellent patient care, health maintenance, and improved patient outcomes. The Continuing Medical Education Office is committed to serve as a catalyst for the life-long learning process with the intent to improve the quality of care and patient safety. We strive to utilize our resources to educate our physicians and benefit the people of our communities by offering diverse, multi-faceted educational activities reinforcing awareness and the importance of self motivation, self-assessment, and the development of self-learning skills.

Continuing Professional Development activities are primarily designed and presented to serve the educational needs of all physicians within Guthrie. Other interested physicians regardless of affiliation are also welcome to attend. As a teaching institution and system-based approach to education, we also welcome and encourage attendance of residents, medical and nursing students, nurses and other healthcare professionals to foster multidisciplinary collaboration.
