Continuing Medical Education

Our Mission

The Essentia Health Continuing Medical Education Program supports the organization’s mission to make a healthy difference in people’s lives. This goal is accomplished by providing evidence-based learning for physicians and other care team professionals to improve competence, performance, and patient outcomes. Impact is measured by learner intent to change practice and organizational performance and outcome metrics.
