Continuing Medical Education

The mission of the Los Angeles County Department of Public Health (LAC DPH) Continuing Medical Education (CME) Program is to promote high quality evidence-based health care for the residents of Los Angeles County.  We address issues that are important to both clinical and population health such as communicable and chronic diseases and public health practice. This page features on-demand CME activities currently offered by LAC DPH.

We welcome feedback on current activities as well as suggestions for future content.

We are unable to offer our usual number of on-demand CME activities due to our focus on the COVID-19 pandemic. Please visit our COVID-19 hub and COVID-19 vaccine hub for listings of future and past webinars on COVID-19, some of which offer CME. The CDC’s Clinician Outreach and Communication Activity (COCA) posts live and on-demand regular webinars on COVID-19 related issues, most of which offer CME.
