Provost Lecture Series

The world of health care is facing unprecedented social, political and financial challenges.

One of the most proactive and productive things we can do in this era of change is to learn from each other and other leaders with knowledge of the current issues that scientists, educators, health care providers and staff members of an academic medical center may face.

The Provost's Lecture Series was created to invite experts to our community to share their unique perspectives at UTMB, to engage us in discussion and inspire us as we work together to improve health here and around the globe.

As president and CEO of the ACCME, an accrediting organization that leverages education to drive quality in health care, Dr. McMahon is working to transform how continuing medical education (CME)  is delivered and used to adapt to our changing clinical environments and needs. He calls upon clinicians to reflect on their own skills to develop an intentional plan for their own skill development. He also encourages health care leaders to recognize the power and capacity of accredited CME to address challenges in their professional environments — from clinician well-being to national imperatives for better health, better care and lower costs — and to support their staff by making space and time for learning that restores joy in practice and helps clinicians thrive.
