In planning an educational activity, there are some questions that need to be answered: 

  • Why are we doing this? 
  • What professional practice gap has been identified? 
  • What do physicians need to know, understand and change regarding this need?   

Developing a needs assessment based on this gap and identifying the underlying problem or learning needs builds the foundation of all activities. From these, objectives and goals are developed, along with content, learning methodology and assessment of the program. 

To begin the planning process, please contact Drucie A. Papafil, MEd, CHCP, Director of CME, by email at or by phone at 757.446.6140.

EVMS CME follows the Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education (ACCME) accreditation requirements and policies in developing educational programming for physicians as evidenced by the EVMS CME Application
