FMX CME Opportunities

Stay sharp with essential CME.

Everything changes, including health care, patient expectations, treatment guidelines, and most certainly technology. How you practice family medicine must evolve too.

FMX CME is designed by family physicians for family physicians to keep you current in a world of change.

2016 FMX CME Session Topics

Review CME session topics organized by body system, patient-based and population-based care, and procedural skills. Choose from core topics identified by your peers as essential to the practice of family medicine. Plan also to attend some of the unique topics that cover timely issues and new research, bridge performance gaps, and address attendee interest.

Interactive Lectures

These dynamic 60-minute sessions presented by family medicine experts are the core of FMX education. Test your knowledge, ask questions, and participate through the interactive Audience Engagement System on your device.

Clinical Procedural Workshops

Attendees observe expert faculty demonstrating procedures followed by hands-on practice of procedural techniques in the CPWs. These sessions are designed to enhance skills-based competencies. These workshops typically run between two and four hours in length.

Separate fee and registration required.

Problem-Based Learning

Apply and practice key concepts from associated lecture sessions. Team up with other attendees in small groups to collaboratively work through challenging case studies and receive feedback from expert faculty. Each PBL session has an associated interactive lecture by the same title.

All PBL sessions will provide a Translation to PracticeTM opportunity.


Look at an issue from several angles in these FMX tracks that feature small group, peer-to-peer learning with feedback from expert faculty. For 2016, each Track is comprised of three interactive lectures, totaling in three CME credits per Track

2016 FMX Track Themes include:

  • Physician Wellness
  • Geriatric Care
  • Disability Management
  • Payment
  • Quality
  • Transforming Clinical Practices Initiatives
  • Pain Management


Out-&-About sessions are designed to provide you with a learning opportunity that extends beyond the convention center. You will have the opportunity to travel off the convention site to a regionally local destination, where you can continue to learn more about topics associated with several interactive lecture sessions.

There will be a Translation to Practice® opportunity associated with each Out-&-About session.

Separate fee and registration required.
