Continuing Medical Education


With rapid advances in technology and pharmaceuticals, all physicians must be engaged in lifelong learning or as some prefer to call it, Continued Medical Education. Moreover, physicians must show a specified annual hourly commitment to earn CME credit hours as a condition of medical licensure. At each of the Hallmark Campuses we enjoy an accredited weekly CME program that brings prominent local and national orators to educate Physicians and other clinicians who chose to attend.

The CME director is Ted Butler, MD and Nancy Mahoney is the CME Coordinator. All interested parties are invited.

Hallmark Health System designates each of these live activities for a maximum of one AMA PRA Category 1 Credit

Physicians should claim only the credit commensurate with the extent of their participation in the activity.

Hallmark Health System is accredited by the Massachusetts Medical Society to provide continuing medical education for physicians.

Schwartz Center Rounds


Hallmark Health System hosts Schwartz Center Rounds, unique, multi-disciplinary sessions in which hospital staff explore the emotional side of caregiving. A national program with sites across the country, Schwartz Center Rounds are funded by the Kenneth B. Schwartz Center, a Boston-based nonprofit dedicated to advancing compassionate healthcare. 

In a typical Rounds session, a panel of caregivers presents a patient case that brought up interesting and important psychosocial issues. Topics have included: delivering bad news; when religious or spiritual beliefs conflict with medical advice; taking care of a colleague; and losing a patient. Hospital staff then share their own thoughts and feelings related to the day's topic.

Unlike grand rounds, these sessions are not about clinical problem-solving, but rather about exploring and processing the emotions that come up in the daily work of hospital staff. A comprehensive study of Schwartz Center Rounds has shown them to help caregivers connect better with patients emotionally; enhance their understanding of the effects of illness on patients and their families; improve communication among caregivers and decrease feelings of caregiver isolation and stress.

There is no set schedule for the Schwartz Center Rounds. Announcements are sent via email to announce the dates and times for the Rounds. For more information about Schwartz Center Rounds, visit www.theschwartzcenter.org.
