KU Medical Center Continuing Education and Professional Development

Serving health professionals, first responders from health and public safety, and the biotechnology industry.

Since 1911, University of Kansas Medical Center Continuing Education programs have benefited physicians, nurses and allied professionals from Kansas, the nation and around the world.

Clinical and scientific conferences and symposia cover the latest advances in research, diagnosis and treatments in many clinical areas. KU Medical Center health professionals stay current by attending departmental grand rounds. Annually, the CE office helps administer and accredits more than 600 grand-round sessions. All sessions are open to community health professionals; some are available through electronic media.

KU Medical Center Continuing Education is nationally accredited by the Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education. It is the largest provider of continuing medical education in Kansas.

Our interdisciplinary education reflects the national trend emphasizing team-based health care. Eighty-five percent of our conferences and symposia offer continuing education credit for both physicians and nurses.

KU Medical Center Continuing Education works in close affiliation with KU’s area health centers in Garden City, Hays, and Pittsburg.
