Accessibility Statement

We are committed to providing a website that is accessible to the widest possible audience. To do so, we are actively working with consultants to update the website by increasing its accessibility and usability by persons who use assistive technologies such as automated tools, keyboard-only navigation, and screen readers.

We are working to have the website conform to the relevant standards of the Section 508 Web Accessibility Standards developed by the United States Access Board, as well as the World Wide Web Consortium's (W3C) Web Content Accessibility Guidelines 2.1. These standards and guidelines explain how to make web content more accessible for people with disabilities. We believe that conformance with these standards and guidelines will help make the website more user friendly for all people.

Our efforts are ongoing. While we strive to have the website adhere to these guidelines and standards, it is not always possible to do so in all areas of the website. If, at any time, you have specific questions or concerns about the accessibility of any particular webpage, please contact so that we may be of assistance.

Thank you. We hope you enjoy using our website.

Continuing Medical Education

An Educational Resource for Today’s Physicians

Our Continuing Medical Education program is designed to improve patient care through organized programs for doctors throughout the Rio Grande Valley. Programs are available year-round for meeting medical license renewal requirements.

For each hour of participation with the program, physicians can claim 1 credit toward the AMA Physician’s Recognition Award (PRA). Our subscription-based clinical information resource, UpToDate, automatically tracks the time you spend using the service. You may claim up to 50 AMA PRA Category 1 credits per certificate.

Our CME program helps health care providers:

  • Address educational needs
  • Remove medical practice inefficiencies
  • Enhance the competency and performance
