Education and CME

The mission of the Minneapolis Heart Institute® Professional Medical Education department is to facilitate state-of-the-art Continuing Medical Education events (CME/CEU) for primary care physicians, Physician Assistants, Nurse Practitioners, and other allied health professionals. Our Professional Medical Education department works closely with the physicians and nursing staff of the Minneapolis Heart Institute® to develop educational presentations on the most current cardiovascular topics. Since all primary health care providers are involved in the overall care of the patient, we strive to be a valuable cardiac information resource to the primary care professionals throughout the region.
