The mission of Tufts University School of Medicine (TUSM) Office of Continuing Education (OCE) is to enhance clinician knowledge and competence, improve clinician performance, and promote lifelong learning for Tufts-affiliated physicians, nurses, and other health practitioners, as well as local, national, and international healthcare providers. The ultimate goal of this endeavor is to improve patient outcomes.
We fulfill this mission through the development of educational activities that: address gaps in knowledge, competence, and/or performance; disseminate evidence-based knowledge and skills; employ educational methods that are suitable to the content, topic, and target audience; and are free from commercial bias and influence.
We engage in systematic analysis of the value and impact of our educational activities and continuously strive to improve the quality and effectiveness of this work. We measure the effectiveness of our continuing education (CE) activities through post-activity evaluation, outcomes surveys, course director/faculty surveys, and through an annual internal evaluation of our overall CE program.
Continuing Pharmacy Education Goal:

To maintain the TUSM OCE focus on inter-professional continuing education;
To offer educational activities that are Knowledge, Application, and/or Practice-based, through multiple activity formats;
To provide educational activities for pharmacists that are planned and implemented in accordance to ACPE standards for education and meet licensure requirements.
