Privacy and Confidentiality Policy Relating to CME Activities

The University of Chicago Center for Continuing Medical Education respects and values the privacy and the confidentiality of the information shared with us. We are committed to protecting this information and will ensure your privacy when participating in University of Chicago continuing medical education (CME) activities.

Information We Collect

Our registration forms require that participants provide contact information (name, email, phone number, and postal address). As part of our CME activities, we collect this registration and evaluation information that you voluntarily share with us. Registration information is used primarily for the purpose of maintaining a record of an individual’s participation in a CME activity. A participant activity evaluation is also considered tangible evidence of participation in a CME activity. 

Use of Information 

Contact information from the registration form is used to confirm participation and to announce future University of Chicago sponsored educational activities. As a result, you may receive periodic emails from the University of Chicago Center for Continuing Medical Education with information on upcoming CME events. If you do not wish to receive such mailings, please contact us at cme@bsd.uchicago.edu. You will only receive telephone contact from our office if there are questions regarding your registration.

We may also use the aggregate registration information (stripped of any data that could be used to identify an individual) to enhance the profile of learners so as to provide appropriate and relevant CME activities. Aggregate information from the evaluation is used solely to assess the quality, scientific integrity, and objectivity of the activity, and the clinical relevance of the activity to the users’ clinical practice needs. 

Precautions against Unauthorized Access or Use of the Information Collected

Participant registration information is not shared with outside individuals, organizations, or commercial supporters and is for University of Chicago Center for Continuing Medical Education use only. Only authorized University of Chicago Center for Continuing Medical Education staff are permitted access to participant information and are required, as a condition of their employment, to keep participant information private.
