Learning Objectives:

  • For learning objectives section, the objectives should be specific and measurable, behaviourable verbs are to be utilized. General verbs such as “understand, appreciate, know, become, learn” should not be used.  For the purposes of the majority of our CME/CPD events, participants would be evaluated in 1 or 2 major domains: cognitive (thinking) and psychomotor (doing). For further guidance, download: http://cme.medicine.iu.edu/index.php/download_file/view/132/84/
  • At least “3 learning objectives” should be written for each CME/CPD session and included in the accreditation application form.


Appropriate verbs to use for cognitive goals: define, diagnose, discuss, evaluate, compare, demonstrate, describe, explain, interpret, differentiate, apply, summarize, formulate, contrast, assess, design

Appropriate verbs to use for psychomotor goals: display, manipulate, arrange, perform, create, operate, adapt, write
