IMPORTANT NOTICE
Regarding Continuing Nursing Education (CNE) and Social Work Continuing Education


We apologize, but due to an unforeseen problem with the continuing education (CE) approval process through our co-provider of the education activity, University Health System, we will not be able to follow through with providing CNE and Social Work credits this year as had been anticipated. You will still be able to receive a certificate of attendance, but this will have no CE hours attached. We apologize for any inconvenience this may have caused.


The Center for Medical Humanities & Ethics values providing free continuing education for all of our partnering disciplines, and we were disheartened to find out that we would not be able to do so this year.


We sincerely hope you will still plan to join us for this exciting and informative conference on April 5!

 

GOALS: The goal of the Annual CSL Conference is to foster academic-community partnerships that maximize students' educational experience while also improving health outcomes. Healthcare professionals will be able to develop sustainable partnerships with community organizations and/or academic institutions that improve the health of patients by engaging health professions students in community service experiences that include mentored preparation and reflection.

 

STATEMENT OF NEED: Offering continuing education credits to faculty and community members through Center activities furthers the UT Health Science Center San Antonio mission of providing compassionate and culturally competent state of the art clinical care and enhancing community health awareness, education and practices. The Center for Medical Humanities & Ethics is uniquely qualified to provide ethics and professionalism education for healthcare professionals.
