At UMA, we believe we are uniquely positioned to educate the entire spectrum of the health care team.  

Our educational offerings for allied health as well as medical professionals provide us important insight in to the roles and responsibilities of each team member.  By understanding the needs and perspectives of each member of the health care team, UMA can create primary and continuing educational opportunities that promote efficient and effective care that contributes to improved patient outcomes.

Global Education Group

Since 2003, Global Education Group has tapped the power of partnership. Our strategic alliances with more than 20 academic centers, professional societies, and other such organizations ensure independence, performance and continuous improvement for learners. Our staff includes experts in accreditation and regulatory guidelines, adult learning and outcomes, medicine, meeting planning and project management. Global is a founding member of the North American Association of Medical Education and Communications Companies (NAAMECC). Our staff members have shared their knowledge in more than 20 informative presentations at national CME and CNE conferences, including the Alliance for CME Annual Conference, MedEd Forum and AMA Task Force on Industry/Provider Collaboration. 

 

Med Learning Group has the ability to design large-scale initiatives to change the healthcare practitioner’s treatment and management behaviors, which leads to a measurable difference in the optimization of care that the patient receives. In many of these initiatives we employ behavior surveys, patient cases, chart reviews, patient surveys and/or sub-population baseline evaluation studies in order to measure Moore’s levels 5 and 6 both subjectively and objectively.  We are able to design all of this impactful education with a great understanding of the guidelines to which we must adhere, including ACCME, PhRMA, AMA and OIG guidance. We have an ACCME Site Surveyor on staff that has conducted over 10 surveys in the past 2 years.
