The Department of Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences offers continuing education programs including weekly lectures during the academic year, conferences and community education events. Since medicine requires a lifelong process of learning and practice, our programs seek to enhance the knowledge and skills of faculty, students and other mental health professions in patient care.
Most continuing education events provide continuing medical education granted by the Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education (ACCME) through the joint providership of The University of Texas Medical Branch at Galveston and The University of Texas Health Science Center at Houston. Contact hours for nurses and social workers are also made available through our partnership with UTHealth Harris County Psychiatric Center, which is an approved provider of continuing nursing education by the Texas Nurses Association and the Texas State Board of Social Work Examiners.
