The content of activities are produced and developed by the Office of Continuing Education (OCE) and our joint sponsor relationships with other organizations including state health agencies, community and regional hospitals, and medical professional societies whose own missions are aligned with that of ourĀ own.

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

Target Audiences

Our educational activities are designed to span the needs of a variety of healthcare professionals. Past activities have included information for physicians, nurses, pharmacists, social workers, dieticians, long- term care providers, lawyers, as well as many more.
