|Introduction: The Continuing Medical Education (CME) programs in the medical community aim to improve the knowledge of practitioners and its effect on changing their performance. Previous studies showed that CME causes minimum changes in physicians’ behaviors, so it is important to pay attention to the views of this group. In this regard, this qualitative study aimed to explain the Iranian Ophthalmologists’ perceptions and experiences concerning the CME Programs in Iran.|
Methods: In this qualitative study, 18 participants, including 10 subspecialists and 8 general ophthalmologists, were recruited to participate in in-depth interviews concerning their experiences
with CME. The required data were collected from April 2018 to Feb 2019. Each interview was conducted in medical universities; eye research centers; and the ophthalmology departments, offices, and operating rooms of public and private hospitals. The current study was performed using a content analysis based on the Granheim and Lundman’s methods. The codes, sub- categories,
categories, and themes were then explored through an inductive process in which the researchers moved from specific to general.
Result: The data obtained from interviews, and filed notes were analyzed and then classified into the following four themes: “growth and development of the ophthalmology’s CME program over time”, “challenges of the ophthalmology’s CME program”, “reasons for the participation of the ophthalmologist in the CME program”, and “strategies for improvement”.
Conclusion: Based on the qualitative study’s results, in spite of growth and development of the design and implementation of the Ophthalmologic CME programs, we are still facing multiple
challenges. Enhancing the interactivity between the providers and participants can also improve the ophthalmology CME programs.
