Physician Assistant Continuing Medical Education

The mission of Barry University College of Nursing and Health Sciences is to provide comprehensive continuing medical education to medical practitioners through appropriate learning activities. These activities will serve to develop or augment the knowledge, skills, and professional performance of health care providers as they provide services to patients, the public, and the profession. We will offer CME activities for physicians (DPM), athletic trainers, and physician assistants as well as other medical providers who wish to attend the programs. The goal of the CME program is to keep medical personnel abreast of current technological and medical advances in their field. Our offerings will include the following formats: lectures, audio and video taped programs, teleconferences, journal readings and internet programs.

The Physician Assistant Program offers an annual, five day review course specifically designed to assist physician assistant students and physician assistants in their preparation of the NCCPA certification and recertification exams. Each attendee has the opportunity to earn AAPA Category 1 CME credits and fulfill the Florida state license renewal requirements for Prevention of Medical Error and Domestic Violence.

The course closely follows the NCCPA content blueprint in the selection of topics and overall organization to provide a well-structured review of the subject matter in the certification and recertification exams. The course also highlights the major aspects of primary care clinical medicine and will be useful for primary care physicians, family practitioners, physician assistants, nurse practitioners, and students in all these disciplines.
