About the CME and CNE Offices

The Center for Learning and Professional Development's CME and CNE Offices sponsor courses and conferences for physicians, nurses, and allied health professionals in the New England region and beyond.

CME mission

As a leader in education and research for health professionals, the CME Program in the CLPD has a mission to assist physicians, advanced practice providers, nurses, other health care professionals, and health care teams in meeting their commitments to lifelong learning and improving their individual and collective competence, performance, and patient outcomes. We meet our mission by generating unbiased educational activities and interventions designed to change competence, performance, and/or patient outcomes and, where possible, improve population health.

CNE mission

The mission of the Nursing Continuing Education Council (NCEC) is to promote excellence in nursing and health care through the provision of evidence-based continuing nursing education (CNE) activities. We offer live and enduring programs that support nursing excellence, quality patient outcomes, and safe, positive work environments. We meet our mission by designing learning activities that are based on focused needs assessments, are comprehensively planned with subject matter experts and representation from members of our target audience, and evaluated through identification of the level of achievement of overall learning outcomes. Our goal is to provide our learners with the knowledge, skills, and behaviors necessary to improve care and patient outcomes.

CLPD mission

CLPD vision

To achieve the healthiest population possible, leading the transformation of health sciences education and research in our region, and setting the standard for our nation. We do this by striving to change and evaluate our learners’ competence and performance and those changes with improvements in patient outcomes and population health.
