About Us


The mission of the UAMS Continuing Education (CE) Program is to assist healthcare professionals in their pursuit of lifelong learning to improve their ability to employ strategies for patient care; quality improvement; medical knowledge; evidence-based medicine; practice-based learning and improvement; interprofessional collaborative care; interpersonal and communication skills; work in interprofessional teams; and systems-based practice.

Our Services

The Office of Continuing Education (OCE) works with UAMS departments as well as with other healthcare organizations including state health agencies, community and regional hospitals, and medical professional societies whose own missions are aligned with that of UAMS.

Our Continuing Education (CE) activities are developed based on needs assessment data to ensure that the content presented reflects current, evidence-based information in order to improve competence, performance and/or patient outcomes in Arkansas.

If you are interested in providing continuing education for your educational activity, please contact us early in the planning process. We have an experienced staff to guide you through the planning process to ensure that all accreditation expectations are met and your event is successful.
