Welcome to UCLA CME

The purpose of the Office of Continuing Medical Education, David Geffen School of Medicine at UCLA is to support the continuing education needs of the medical community by providing high-quality, evidence-based activities designed to narrow the professional practice gaps of its learners.

The activities are designed to help learners maintain and upgrade clinical skills and knowledge, keep abreast of new and evolving medical concepts pertaining to effective diagnostic and treatment strategies, remain current with basic science research, and foster professional development in procedural skills, communication and teaching skills, and bioethics.

CMA Continuing Medical Education CLC and IB Standards

The California Medical Association (CMA) believes cultural and linguistic competencies are essential to providing quality and accessible care, and also acknowledges that society has embedded and endemic structural racism and biases that affect the care that an individual receives.

To help bridge the gap, CMA’s continuing medical education (CME) team (CMA CME) has updated cultural and linguistic competency (CLC) standards and created standards for implicit bias (IB) that reduce health disparities, as well as comply with state law. CME providers must meet the various components to comply with state law beginning on January 1, 2022, and thereafter.

Business and Professions (B&P) Code Section 2190 requires CMA to develop standards for CLC and IB for inclusion in CME activities. B&P 2190 is codified through Assembly Bill (AB) 1195 (Coto, 2005) and AB 241 (Kamlager-Dove, 2019).
