Training physicians in systems-based practice is a well-recognized need, yet achieving this objective has been slower than would be expected. Our continuing medical education (CME) efforts have a great influence on how physicians learn and what they learn. Merging the need to provide ongoing education with the need to help physicians become more system minded and more proficient systems managers provides great opportunities for the CME community. This paper explores the role of CME in training physicians in systems-based practice.
