- Medical Education
Medical education is education related to the practice of being a medical practitioner. Medical education is either the initial training to become a doctor or additional training thereafter. Medical education could be medical school, post-graduate education or online information. Continuing medical education is usually required for continued licensing. Continuing medical education is a part of AMA\'s physician resources to further a physician\'s education and continue their professional development. Continuing medical education helps those in the medical field maintain competence and learn about new and developing areas of their field. Medical continuing education can be in the form of conferences, live events, written publications, online programs and electronic media. Medical continuing education is typically required but differs in its requirements based on location. Medical continuing education is overseen in the US by ACCME.
