The decline in the number of accredited Continuing Medical Education activities over the past decade is multifactorial but is contrary to many principles of adult learning. This article describes how one small hospital in a larger hospital system has been able to preserve its long-standing programme as a Regularly Scheduled Series which is considered beneficial not only to its medical staff but to other healthcare providers who also are participants. It may serve as model for other smaller institutions facing this issue.
