Continuing Medical Education (CME)

Aspen Medical understands the importance of regular and relevant Continuing Medical Education (CME) and Continuing Nurse Education (CNE), and how essential it is for healthcare professionals to maintain clinical competence and develop new knowledge and clinical skills.

Our philosophy towards developing and delivering CME courses is to utilise evidence-based practice to enhance knowledge and standards which results in improved patient outcomes. We are recognised as an innovator in the development of specialised CME and CNE programs, with recognition as a leader in Medical Professional Development programs in the UAE holding recognised accreditation from international and local accreditation bodies.

Aspen Medical is an accredited provider of CNE by the American Nurses Credentialing Center’s Commission on Accreditation. The American Nurses Credentialing Center (ANCC), a subsidiary of the American Nurses Association (ANA), provides organisations throughout the nursing profession with the resources to achieve practice excellence. ANCC’s internationally renowned credentialing programs certify nurses in specialty practice areas, recognise healthcare organisations for promoting safe, positive work environments and accredit providers and approvers of CNE.

Aspen Medical’s clients benefit from these ANCC standards as they provide a powerful, global benchmark to continually self-assess and identify ways to strengthen our CNE programs. We are the only healthcare training provider in the UAE with ANCC accreditation and our clients can trust us to deliver quality professional education that adheres to evidence-based global standards.

Additionally, as a licenced CME provider with the Department of Health, Abu Dhabi (DOH), the CME and CNE courses we deliver are accredited for clinical CME hours approved by DOH.
