The Directorate General of Health in Duhok Governorate launched the Continuing Medical Education (CME) Program in January 2005.

Taking into consideration the MISSION STATEMENT OF THE CENTER, the CME Center aims to assist health professionals in DOH Duhok & Duhok Medical College to keep abreast of the developments in their specialties and updated in improving their performance for a better patient and community health care.

The majority of medical, dental and pharmacist practitioners in Duhok are now registered in it. Steps have already been taken to expand the program so that other categories of heath professionals would benefit from it. To make certain that the CME program proceed efficiently and that practitioners get best possible chance for participating in CME activities, the CME Center has predetermined some administrative necessities to be achieved by CME organizers in every scientific department in our three Teaching Hospitals: Azadi, Emergency and Paediatric Heevi Hospital.

Guidelines to CME organizers in every department deals specifically with almost all aspects of the program have been made, arranged and distributed in advance. The CME officers who have chosen by CME Center represent the different specialties would be in a position to make clear matters regarding the routine administration of the program.

Although we were able to attain modest success in the past two years, we are looking forward for more cooperation and consolidation from our health professionals since this program is in need for continuous and sustainable efforts by all to achieve optimal goals and objectives.
