Rhode Island Medical Society 11th Hour CME Webcast Event

April 18, 2020 to May 2, 2020

The Rhode Island Medical Society Bylaws list four objectives that guide us as we look for ways to serve the physician community in our State. The first is to promote the art & science of medicine & the improvement of public health. The second is to advocate for the provision of quality medical care for all patients. The third is to promote the exchange of information & dialogue among physicians. The fourth is to enlighten & direct public opinion in regard to the challenges facing medicine. 

This educational event combines all of these objectives and provides an opportunity for physicians to stay informed and obtain CME credit in four special topic areas (ethics, risk management, chronic pain management, end of life/palliative care) that are required for RI physician relicensure.  

Note that only April 18th is available, via live webcast streaming.
