CME presentation

Throughout Gundersen's history, great patient care and excellence in education and research have gone hand-in-hand. As medical practice changed over the years, so did the way clinicians and staff learned.

Educational offerings for clinicians through Gundersen Medical Foundation's Continuing Medical Education (CME) have changed over time, too, as the organization's culture of continuous improvement and focus on evidence-based practices has evolved.

"Over the last 30 years, CME offerings and best practices have really changed to match the standards of care," says Greg Thompson, MD, chief medical officer and director of Gundersen Medical Foundation, Medical Education. "We've shifted from building knowledge, through presentations and seminars, to addressing gaps in knowledge, based on identification and measurement of the gaps."

To assist in this needs-based, clinician-driven program, the CME office announced Kimberly Hardy, MD, will be joining the CME team in the role of CME program director. Dr. Hardy's role is to provide oversight and guidance to the CME office for the development and direction of continuing medical education activities. She will also connect the office to organizational efforts to achieve an integrated education program for the general and specialty needs of Gundersen clinicians.

The Gundersen CME office is operated by Gundersen Medical Foundation. Clinician and staff training and education seminars are funded, in part, by generous gifts from donors. To continually improve patient care and outcomes, medical education is a priority of Gundersen Medical Foundation. Gundersen is grateful for the generosity of donors and their partnership in promoting medical education and the health of our communities.
