Sessions will be scheduled periodically and topics chosen based on current trends in patient care. Possible topics include patient safety research, quality improvement, opioid abuse, precision medicine, and ambulatory care.
 
Sessions in the series will each be eligible for 1 hour of Continuing Education credit from the Medical Library Association and will be recorded for future viewing.
