Continuing Education for Health Professions
MU Continuing Education for Health Professions (CEHP) provides evidenced-based, relevant and responsive learning activities designed to narrow professional practice gaps with respect to knowledge, competence, and performance of the healthcare team. A commitment to lifelong learning, in partnership with those we serve, contributes to excellence in practice and improved health outcomes.
Who We Are
The University of Missouri continues to strengthen its commitment to improving the health and wellbeing of Missourians. In 2020, five units were brought together into the Office of Health Outreach, Policy and Education (HOPE). These units – the Missouri Telehealth Network, the Rural Track Pipeline Program, the Center for Health Policy, Community Health Engagement and Outreach, and Continuing Medical Education (CME) – span MU Extension and the School of Medicine. In 2021, MU Nursing Outreach (MUNO) joined HOPE, adding the Sinclair School of Nursing to this group.
In adding MUNO, Extension and HOPE leadership realized that a truly interprofessional Continuing Education division would offer a stronger support system to people who work across the healthcare team. Thus, two historically powerful CE programs were merged into one, and Continuing Education for Health Professions (CEHP) was formed.
But the story doesn’t end there. CEHP is building a Steering Committee made up of health professionals from many different disciplines, who will make sure that educational needs and practice gaps are identified and met, and that the voices of these professionals are heard throughout the planning, execution, and evaluation of our activities.
