The Division of Continuing Education in Healthcare Professions at Indiana University School of Medicine is actively monitoring the COVID-19 global pandemic and understands the difficulties that learners are experiencing, both personally and professionally. The division will continue to monitor federal, state and local guidelines, as well as those of Indiana University and IU School of Medicine during this unprecedented time. The health and safety of students, faculty, staff and guests remains the first priority. The Continuing Education team is working diligently with course directors to make swift decisions on the status of upcoming CME conferences.
In-person Event Approval
Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, all continuing education events are strongly encouraged and preferred to be held virtually. Events with 50 or more people in attendance should be moved to a virtual format, or canceled/postponed to a later date (per IU School of Medicine guidance 9/10/2021). In-person Events should have 49 or less people in attendance. For these in-person events, no food or beverages are allowed (or anything that requires the removal of a mask), although it is allowable to provide to-go boxes of food for attendees to take with them. It is strongly advised that smaller group meetings avoid having food/beverages so attendees can remain masked throughout the event. This information is based on IU and CDC guidelines and recommendations for in-person gatherings.
