Short, video webcasts touch on areas of high clinical need and interest; include experts from University of Wisconsin, Wake Forest University, and Loyola University Chicago

CME Outfitters, LLC, an award-winning accredited provider of multidisciplinary continuing education, today announces several new CME/CE activities that are open for participation from practicing health care clinicians. These easy-to-view webcasts focus on important topics across neurology, psychiatry and primary care, and provide continuing education credit for physicians.

“Whether clinicians need to complete continuing education credits for relicensure requirements, or have an urgent need for answers at the point of care, these activities touch on topics very relevant to daily practice challenges” says Jan Perez, CCMEP, managing partner of CME Outfitters, LLC. “Conditions such as mood disorders, stroke, and sleep-wake disorders can have complex symptomatology, so remaining up-to-date on diagnostic and treatment standards is important.”
