When CME content is designed and developed, it is based on educational needs assessments. But needs vary across the spectrum of physicians and types of practices they engage in.

This is Part One of a two-part discussion on the topic, with Dr. Robert Morgan, director oncology and director of CME at City of Hope, and Dr. Jason Lazar, associate professor of medicine and director of noninvasive cardiology at State University of New York Downstate Medical Center, and host Lawrence Sherman.
