The evolution of expectations for continuing medical education (CME) reflects a desire to connect the education of physicians and other health care professionals to improvements in health care delivery and ultimately to patient outcomes. This transition requires a new framework not only for educational design but also for measuring the impact of these educational activities in the lifelong learning and practice improvement of physicians and health care professionals as they move through their professional lives. Physicians’ and other health care professionals’ lifelong learning and their application of new clinical findings improve patient care and population health by reducing the gap between current medical evidence and current clinical practice. Studies have revealed that CME activities are effective in closing this gap between evidence and practice. CME activities that support lifelong learning require significant resources.
