India and CME

According to The Times of India, the Dehli Medical Council is getting serious about improving the professionalism of its physicians--including CME. A snippet:

    The concept of Continuing Medical Education (CME) has remained a voluntary exercise in the country. Apart from sensitising the doctors on the relevance of CME, DMC is contemplating on bringing out a journal on better ethical practices. Although, the council has no plans to make CME compulsory for the practising doctors, at least for the time being, defining the accredited hours and modalities of CME is definitely been considered. "We are planning to create 27 DMC-CME centres all across the city to ensure that doctors need not to travel longer distances to attend CME seminars and other exercises, but are able to do so within their vicinity," Dr Aggarwal added.

Well, it's a start.
