CME/CE Seminar Information

Medical/Dental Health & Well-Being Updates

CME/CE Lecture Seminars for Medical, Dental, Nursing and Allied Healthcare Professionals

This Seminar is planned for 12 Continuing Education Credit Hours.

  • Seminar Attendance Fee: $450

CME/CE credits, Certificates of Completion and possible tax deductible guidelines will be provided for registered Professional Seminar attendees Certificates of Attendance will be provided for ALL registered seminar participants.


Seminar Overview/Statement of Purpose:

Confronting the challenges of delivering quality patient care within the face of restricted budgets and resources, and at intervals, the general framework of continuous medical care reform is quickly turning into a worldwide issue for medical practitioners. Due to the former Soviet alliance countries adopting democratic reform and structure in their socialist economies, major changes are being projected for their healthcare systems. Practitioners are facing challenges of incorporating medical care reforms into their own health system.


Thus it’s time to supply an outline of the present standing of East European health care delivery systems, their impact on populations, and the way key health problems in these countries compare with the US & Canada. Examining lifespan and mortality rates for selected conditions could be used to assess potential challenges and solutions for medical reform and can function as benchmarks against which to measure future progress in improving populations’ health.


By design, this program permits medical experts to collaborate with colleagues and international counterparts to realize cross-cultural viewpoints and updates within the treatment and prevention of disease and offers opportunities to compare and contrast current best practices to supply quality patient care and outcomes in their own professional setting.


Planned In-Country Healthcare Topics Include: 

  • Healthcare System Overview
  • Treatment and Prevention Strategies for Common Chronic Illnesses (i.e. cardiovascular, diabetes)
  • Evaluating the Impact of Diet and Lifestyle on Disease
  • Dental Healthcare Updates: Delivery & Treatment
  • Top Medical/Disease Issues: Challenges & Conquests
  • Preventive and Intervention Strategies to Improve Population Health

Educational Goals: Our goal is to provide unparalleled CME/CE travel opportunities for healthcare professionals that combine their most passionate destination desires with their educational goals, fostering exceptional learning experiences, friendships and connections with national and international colleagues.

  • Conduct educational healthcare programs to learn about best practice models reflecting current approaches in medicine and healthcare across different cultures for providing quality patient outcomes
  • Provide professional educational exchanges with international colleagues, healthcare educational organizations and clinics to gain cross-cultural perspectives and updates in the treatment and prevention of disease
  • Allow medical/healthcare professionals to compare and contrast current best practices in medical/healthcare delivery to provide quality patient outcomes in their own professional setting

Learning Objectives: Keep abreast of rapid expansion of medical knowledge and current best practice models on multiple topics to facilitate change and thus provide continually excellent patient care.

By design, this program permits medical experts to collaborate with colleagues and international counterparts to realize cross cultural view points and updates within the treatment and prevention of disease and offers opportunities to compare and contrast current best practices to supply quality patient care and outcomes in their own professional setting.
