# Continuing Education

[TOC]

All of us are expected to be engaged in continuing to build our expertise in pursuit of achieving our goal to advance
science. As a member of this group you are required to document your efforts by **accumulating at least 12 continuing
education (CE) hours per year**, with **at least one hour in every quarter**.

## CE Activities

Any of the following activities can satisfy that goal.

* Attend seminars related to project goals
* Attend individual sessions at meetings/conferences (document each session/talk separately)
* Participate in workshops
* Attend Grand Rounds in Birmingham or Huntsville
* Complete an online course connected to your work
* Working on higher education training relevant to the field or position held (i.e. a Masters, Ph. D., etc.)

## CE Logging

Create and maintain a log of your activities towards this goal for each calendar year. A template is set up in
[Box/CGDS/General/Continuing Education](https://uab.box.com/s/pbjryninz93xkw38xbaq1qdt4a4sh912). Open the template then
Save As and add your name to the file name within the /Continuing_Education folder. Add new CE activities to this same
file throughout your tenure with CGDS.

For each activity record:

* Title
* Activity type
* Location (URL if online course, course(s) code when applicable)
* Date(s)
* Time spent:  
  Brief statement describing the activity and it furthered your knowledge

For example:

```md
Grand Rounds @ Hsv 24-Sep-19 45min

M+M presentation by 3rd yr resident on patient w/Pyridoxine-dependent epilepsy and the
problems encountered getting patient treatment established due to mistakes and unnecessary
delays. Note: Perhaps EHR could support rare disease alerts for professionals. Also resident
was unaware of how to test for this condition so some education in OMIM, and other databases
to support diagnosis would be useful.
```

If you have other activities you would like to add to this list to fulfill the requirements, please check with Liz to
get approval. Also note that HIPAA training does not count toward this requirement.
