Stroke Self Study CMEs

The purpose of the UF Health Stroke CME Program is to provide healthcare providers with up-to-date, clinically relevant, scientifically rigorous, evidence-based medical information and training using educationally sound principles and formats in order to promote excellence in all aspects of stroke care and coordination, patient safety and the effective use of resources. Through coordinated efforts within the University of Florida and the UF College of Medicine we strived to optimize the development of educational initiatives that focus on patient care, medical knowledge, practice-based learning and improvement, professionalism, system-based practice, and interpersonal and communication skills.
