Office of Continuing Education
The Idaho WWAMI Office of Continuing Education (CE) is committed to providing lifelong learning opportunities for Idaho healthcare teams, with a focus on meeting the needs of our rural and underserved communities. We strive to provide CE opportunities that are needed and desired by our healthcare providers and state through delivery mechanisms that reduce barriers to attendance. Our desire is to enhance learner self-efficacy, knowledge and competence to improve healthcare and health outcomes in Idaho.
Activities sponsored and provided by the Office of CE are determined by research activities and ongoing assessment of the target audience's educational needs. CE activities may include, but are not limited to, interdisciplinary recurring activities (i.e., regularly scheduled series); skills sessions; CME Grand Rounds; and one-time activities (e.g., lectures, conferences, seminars, mini symposia).
