Why Physicians Attend Traditional CME Programs.
Richards, Robert K.; Cohen, Rita M.
Journal of Medical Education, v55 n6 p470-85 Jun 1980
Based on a literature review, reasons for physician participation in traditional continuing medical education programs are categorized as: professionalism, an interest in topics, a means of validating or modifying prior learning, a means to attain a learning objective, and a change of pace. Inner motivation is seen as a more important reason than mandatory attendance regulations. (Author/JMD)
