Continuing Medical Education

Dell Medical School physician leaders — from new graduates to longtime faculty members — must continue to enhance their provision of evidence-based, patient-centered care for the entirety of their careers. Through Continuing Medical Education (CME) activities offered by the school, Dell Med team members and local practitioners have access to lifelong learning opportunities that benefit the community.

The mission of Dell Med’s CME program mission is to provide comprehensive, objective, evidence-based CME activities that enhance the knowledge, competence and performance of its participants.

The program’s goals are to:

  • Encourage the academic and professional development of physicians;
  • Further scientific discovery and advancement;
  • Promote innovation, improvement and equity in the delivery of health care; and
  • Endorse the practice of lifelong learning.

Dell Med’s CME program strives to foster innovation that improves how people get and stay healthy by offering professional development opportunities that promote enhanced value, safety, quality and equity of care. Activity presenters include leading experts from Central Texas and around the nation who deliver comprehensive, objective and evidence-based education to further scientific discovery and advancement.



CME Events are open to physicians, physician assistants, nurse practitioners and other interprofessional providers who practice primary, specialty and subspecialty care.


Dell Med hosts live, interactive lecture-based instruction, case-based discussion, hands-on training sessions and small-group workshops. The CME program includes regularly scheduled series and large conferences covering a broad range of topics in all medical specialties. In addition, Dell Med accredits activities for Maintenance of Certification and provides asynchronous enduring materials such as the Dell Med Discovering Value-Based Health Care modules.

The University of Texas at Austin Dell Medical School is accredited by the Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education (ACCME). The Office of Continuing Medical Education only produces independent activities which are free from commercial support. They are implemented in accordance with the accreditation requirements and policies of the Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education (ACCME).
