Pauley offers free CME and MOC programs via Zoom

Pauley’s continuing education classes highlight new and interesting faculty research.

As a part of our commitment to academic excellence, we offer weekly opportunities for learning. Each one-hour educational program allows attendees to interactively learn from rising, prominent and internationally recognized experts in the field of cardiology, some of whom are located in other countries.

Each conference features new and topical research. Conferences are free, and participants do not have to register ahead of time. Additionally, selected conferences allow attendees to earn continuing medical education (CME) credits, maintenance of certification (MOC) points or both.

Typically, physicians needing CME credits for their licensure and MOC for board certification must seek out these educational opportunities and pay for them out of pocket. But Pauley offers them for free to both internal and external participants. Pauley also offers continuing education credits to nurses, pharmacists, pharmacy technicians, psychologists, physician assistants, social workers and MRI technologists, noted Shannon Winston, Pauley’s new professional education program coordinator and event planner.

Among regional peer institutions, Pauley Heart Center has taken the lead in offering educational credits, Winston said, adding that these efforts support Pauley’s mission to provide comprehensive education and training to cardiology students and professionals, and will help further position Pauley as a leader in the field. “As we have revamped the educational programming that Pauley offers, our attendance continues to grow,” Winston said. “We are eager to get the word out and encourage any interested parties to get involved.”
