Continuing Education Resources for International Health Care Providers

In the dynamic world of medicine, health professionals are challenged to stay informed and connected to information and colleagues that can help them provide better care to their patients and advance the science of medicine. Please see the below list of opportunities available at Johns Hopkins Medicine.

Physician Continuing Medical Education

Each year, thousands of physicians and other health care professionals come to Johns Hopkins to expand skills, gain new knowledge and retrain in everything from new techniques in transplantation to managing the business of medicine. The Johns Hopkins Office of Continuing Medical Education offers physicians worldwide the opportunity to stay informed on the latest developments in medicine.

Featured Education Opportunities

Fourth Annual Johns Hopkins Spine Workshop

September 5-6, 2014 | Baltimore, MD, USA
With safety as an utmost priority in spinal surgery, it is imperative that surgical trainees receive continual anatomical education. This is accomplished in the operating room while trainees learn on live patients. However, the safest way to learn is via cadaveric instruction. With the cost of health care increasing, the decrease in industry sponsored cadaveric courses due to political pressures against industry-sponsored medical education, and decreased working hours for physicians, such education is now at a premium. A spine cadaveric workshop is not only demanded but required in the current medical education so that surgeons can continue to be trained in safe and effective surgical techniques on the spine.
