Natividad supports professional development and education throughout the medical community.
Continuing Medical Education
Our Continuing Medical Education (CME) Program, under the direction of Natividad’s medical staff, provides accredited Continuing Medical Education activities to our medical staff and our community provider partners. The CME Program’s mission is to increase learners’ knowledge, competence and performance so they are able to provide the best medical care possible to our community. Natividad is accredited by the Institute for Medical Quality/California Medical Association (IMQ/CMA) to provide continuing medical education for physicians. Our program provides a variety of AMA PRA Category 1™ credit Continuing Medical Education activities, including Grand Rounds, Journal Club, Research Symposiums, and SimLab programs. Our CME activities are free to our community providers.
