Continuing medical education (CME) is required of all physicians in order to maintain licensure. However, the effects of CME on physician performance or patient outcomes has been poorly studied and understood. It's not clear what types of learning are optimal in order to effect real change in physician behavior. A student could begin to explore this area by helping design a study of physician behavior and/or patient outcome linked with a CME activity (e.g. conference or Grand Rounds at a specific hospital). The student could be involved in planning aspects of the learning and then evaluate the hypothesized effects.
