CME Mission Statement
The purpose of the American Society for Laser Medicine and Surgery (ASLMS) Accredited Continuing Education (CE) program is to enhance the understanding of lasers and the application of laser, light, energy-based and related technologies in biomedicine. The ASLMS is committed to continuous quality improvement and excellence in all of its accredited CE activities.
The ASLMS Accredited CE Program provides educational activities that allow learners to identify gaps in their knowledge, competence, and/or performance. The expected result is changes in learners’ competence, and, when appropriate, performance, in the areas of research, education and standards of clinical care as they relate to medical laser and energy-based device applications. Learners will use the knowledge gained to improve clinical outcomes as a result of their improved understanding of the best practices relative to patient treatment with these technologies, and their safe use.
