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.

PMC Citations indicate the number of times the publication was cited by articles in PubMed Central, and the Altmetric score represents citations in news articles and social media. (Note that publications are often cited in additional ways that are not shown here.) Fields are based on how the National Library of Medicine (NLM) classifies the publication's journal and might not represent the specific topic of the publication. Translation tags are based on the publication type and the MeSH terms NLM assigns to the publication. Some publications (especially newer ones and publications not in PubMed) might not yet be assigned Field or Translation tags.) Click a Field or Translation tag to filter the publications.
