Course Info

CME the way you want it!

Live conferences in 2021 and our online On Demand course have 20 hours of accredited CME content, focused on adult hospital medicine. Live conferences in 2022 have 16 hours accredited CME; the opioid module is not included, and the remaining content is slightly compressed from 18 hours into 16 hours. Attendees at live conferences also receive access to the onl9ine On Demand course at no additional charge, so if you want to watch the opioid module and earn CME you still can.

Entire course is taught by practicing hospitalists. We know how to focus on what's important to you!

Live conferences allow for a "working vacation" with family or friends! Course schedule is Monday-Friday 7:30-11:30 a.m.

Hospital Medicine Update On Demand is our online version - all content available to watch at your own pace. This is also included for live conference attendees. These videos are updated continuously, as new studies affect how we practice!
