Deep South Network
The Deep South CME Network was founded in 2003 in a collaboration between the UAB Division of CME and the Alabama Quality Assurance Foundation to bring evidence-based educational experiences on the care of complex patients to southeastern physicians and nurse practitioners. Since that time, the UAB Division of CME has offered monthly online educational experiences for CME credit based on the needs of its members. Join the network and be the first to know about new online CME course offering.
