    Summary: "The seventh biennial Harrison Survey, jointly sponsored by the Association of American Medical Colleges (AAMC) and the Society for Academic Continuing Medical Education (SACME), documents an academic enterprise that displays three major characteristics, somewhat in opposition to its traditional image as an isolated, passive educational entity. First, continuing medical education/ continuing professional development (CME/CPD) is increasingly integrated into the functions and missions of academic medical centers, academic health systems, and medical schools of the United States and Canada. Second, it demonstrates numerous examples of innovation and scholarship in educational design and operation. Finally, possibly as a result of the first two elements, there is an increased focus on assessing the impact of CME/CPD activities on learner competence, performance, and health care outcomes. The purpose of the survey is to help identify and understand the placement and alignment of the CME/CPD unit within the academic medical center (AMC). Survey findings will benefit those in the CME/CPD field who can use the data to assess and enhance the shape and scope of CME/CPD and who will share the information with AMC leaders, including deans, CEOs, and others. The survey generates broad but important findings for discussion and analysis in three areas: CME/CPD's structure, its function relative to relationships and educational methods, and its scope, reach, and impact. Throughout this report, data from the last Harrison Survey in 2013 are used for comparative purposes"--Executive summary.
