From the Editors | Fall 2021

Dear Readers,

As the new academic year begins, you are most likely busy implementing the new CPD strategies and programs your educational teams have planned over this hot and turbulent summer. In keeping with this order, we wish to introduce you to our revised mission and new column editors appearing for the first time in this issue.  Last winter, the SACME Communications Committee, under the direction of Leslie Doering, embarked on a process to further distinguish and coordinate the content of our three SACME publications—Intercom, CE News and Pulse Points.  The CE News mission has been reinformed and is published here for your information. 

Along with our revised mission, we have expanded our editorial team in the hope of creating a more sustainable and interesting newsletter offering useful content.  We are delighted to introduce our talented new column editors/authors.  They are : Mila Kostic, Helen Mawdsley, EdD, Mohammad Salhia, and Eleftherios K. Soleas, PhD. Our column authors aim to bring new content in areas of strong interest to our readers.  As all our columns continue to evolve, we hope that periodically you will contact our column editors and provide them with your suggestions for article topics and other comments. 

All the best,

Martin and Robert

2023-Summer From the Editors

Letter from the Chief Editor

Dear Readers,

As you may have noticed, you didn’t receive a CE News Spring issue. Instead, you received our 2023 Annual Proceedings Report, filled with plenary session summaries, oral abstracts and poster presentations. If you didn’t have the opportunity to attend the 2023 meeting in Nashville either virtually or live, than we hope you will take a moment to review this report. Presently, the report is available to members and the public to download. In other news, I am delighted to announce two additions to our editorial team. Ginny Jacobs, PhD, a past SACME president and well-known in the CME/CPD community, has agreed to serve as Co-Chief Editor. We are so fortunate to have Ginny join the team and we look forward to her contributions both…

From the Editor – Fall 2022

Welcome back from the long, hot summer. We apologize for the delay in publishing this Fall issue and will be back to our normal, quarterly schedule this Winter.

We begin the issue with our International CME/CPD Update with a summary report of a unique workshop presented by Helena Filipe and Mila Kostic during the annual AMEE international conference this past September in Lyon. The workshop focused on the value of weaving professional networking, potentially enhanced by technology, and creating structured conversations at the workplace as pathways to develop professional development opportunities and creating value to the organization.
