Continuing Medical Education

A CME conference in the summer in Maine combines an educational experience with a Maine vacation experience. Colby has been host to educational programs for the medical and allied health professions since 1945 and is the only private liberal arts college in the nation accredited to offer Category 1 credit for the Physician's Recognition Award of the American Medical Association.*

Each summer the courses attract registrants from all across the country, and this diverse geographic representation enhances the exchange of ideas that course participants especially value. Our friendly, courteous staff, small course size, accessible faculty, and timely topics make a CME program at Colby a quality experience.

*The American Academy of Nurse Practitioners (AANP) and the American Academy of Physician Assistants (AAPA) accept AMA PRA Category 1 Credits™ from organizations accredited by the ACCME.

Nurses may claim credit for activities approved for AMA PRA Category 1 Credits™ in most states, for up to 50% of the nursing requirement for recertification. Please check with your state accrediting body for further clarification.
