Continuing Education is a duty and a right of the professional and there is no doubt that the Professional Associations play a relevant and essential role in maintaining professional competence. As stated in the Law for the Management of Health Professions (LOPS) «Continuing education is the process of active and permanent teaching and learning to which health professionals have the right and obligation, which begins at the end of undergraduate studies or specialization and is intended to update and improve the knowledge, skills and attitudes of health professionals to scientific and technological developments and the demands and needs, both social and health system itself».
In order to develop one of its main objectives, which is Continuing Education, the Official Institution of Physicians of Alicante has created the Continuing Education Commission whose main purpose is to organize and promote training activities that offer the medical professional the possibility to maintain and increase their knowledge and skills to meet the continuing challenges posed by the practice of our profession.
Mutual Médica collaborates with the Institution of Physicians of Alicante in Continuing Medical Education, through a collaboration agreement established for this purpose.
The General Objective of the Continuing Medical Education Commission of the College is the following:
To promote the updating of knowledge and skills of medical professionals through training activities. To this end, some fundamental pillars are established through specific objectives:
- The elaboration of a Continuous Training Plan, organizing activities that will cover in a proportionate way the professional demands.
- To study the proposals for continuing education activities and to endorse their quality, supporting the adequacy of their teaching objectives.
- To guide medical professionals on the most appropriate activities to maintain continuing education in their field.
- Promote the participation of professionals and the development of activities in the field of Medicine.
- To ensure that all activities carried out in the COMA have their corresponding and appropriate accreditation.
The general objective will be established for a period of 3 years after which it will be evaluated in order to be faithful and in turn respond to the requirements of its members in this area. It will be carried out through the Continuing Medical Education Commission of the Official Institution of Physicians of Alicante.
