The Division of Continuing Medical Education (CME) at Indiana University School of Medicine is actively monitoring the COVID-19 global pandemic and understands the difficulties that learners are experiencing, both personally and professionally. The division will continue to monitor federal, state and local guidelines, as well as those of Indiana University and IU School of Medicine during this unprecedented time. The health and safety of students, faculty, staff and guests remains the first priority.
The Continuing Medical Education team is working diligently with course directors to make swift decisions on the status of upcoming CME conferences.
In-person Event Approval
Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, all CME events are strongly encouraged and preferred to be held virtually. If it is a necessity that an educational activity be held in person, the activity must go through an initial approval process:
- Events with 24 or fewer people (inclusive of event organizers, staff and participants) must be approved through the CME Safety Committee.
- Events with 25 or more people (inclusive of event organizers, staff and participants) must be approved by the Indiana University Event Request Committee.
This process is based on IU and CDC guidelines and recommendations for in-person gatherings. Those making requests should allow 10 days for review process and decision. For external clients, this process will be facilitated through CME through Kim Denny as part of the application process.
