Continuing Education

Continuing Medical Education

Continuing Medical Education (CME) at Fox Chase Cancer Center is coordinated through the Temple Health CME Program. Their purpose is to support the educational needs of the medical staffs of both Fox Chase Cancer Center and Jeanes Hospital’s integrated campus in order to improve patient care.

The CME Program embraces evidence-based programs which promote new concepts in patient safety and enhance excellence in care. We strive to improve patient outcomes through an interdisciplinary approach to patient-centered care which strengthens interpersonal communication between healthcare providers and referring physicians.

The Temple Health CME Program is accredited by the Pennsylvania Medical Society to provide continuing medical education for physicians.
