CME

MCMS offers in-person and virtual events with continuing medical education (CME) credits. MCMS is soliciting volunteers to serve on CME Subcommittee. Members will serve for one year. They will assist MCMS staff with vetting potential topics, speakers, and moderators for CME live and virtual events. The work would be accomplished remotely and may require 30-60 minutes a week.
