Continuing medical education in Finland
In 2022, doctors participated in an average of 6.8 days of continuing medical education organised outside the physician's site of practice, with only one in five reaching the minimum recommended training duration of ten days, as advised by the Finnish Medical Association. Doctors remained increasingly dissatisfied with the amount of CME, with just slightly over half considering the amount sufficient.
