About the Neuroscience Education Institute
Since its inception in 2000, NEI has distinguished itself from other continuing medical education companies by providing high quality, visually engaging, evidence-based, and fair and balanced activities designed to help increase the competence of health care professionals in the diagnosis and treatment of psychiatric and neurologic disease states. NEI is dedicated to providing the highest quality educational experience, with cutting edge content that is developed and delivered according to learner-centered educational principles. In particular, NEI is uniquely known for making complex concepts accessible through the use of animation and a visual lexicon that is present throughout our content.
NEI was founded by award-winning author and psychiatrist Dr. Stephen M. Stahl, who had the desire to help more patients by helping the professionals who treated them. Today, more than 45,000 mental health professionals continually return to NEIglobal.com to receive their continuing education and satisfy their need for professional growth.
NEI’s activities and resources focus on (but are not limited to) the following specific disease states: depression, anxiety disorders, bipolar spectrum disorders, schizophrenia, psychosis, sleep disorders, ADHD, Alzheimer’s disease and other dementias, substance use, PTSD, cardiometabolic syndrome and psychiatric illness, neuropathic pain, traumatic brain injury, movement disorders, psychiatric consequences of neurologic disorders, and others. NEI’s content is developed as a result of gap analyses and needs assessments of health care professionals working in the field of psychiatric and neurologic disorders.
NEI believes that greater diversity will enhance our organization by fueling engaged and innovative educational content that more closely connects us to our members and the patients they serve. For this reason, we strive to embrace diversity in all its forms—identity, culture, background, experience, status, abilities, and opinions. Our team is committed to nurturing a welcoming, diverse, and inclusive environment for our employees, faculty, and members.
NEI’s CME program consists of annual and regional conferences, live sessions at national meetings, online CME activities, print CME activities, and other online resources.
CME Online Activities enhance the participant’s understanding of a particular topic with visual aids. These online activities consist of animations, case studies, webinars, podcasts, Self-Assessments, and Encore Presentations of live sessions from our annual meetings.
CME Print Activities are heavily illustrated for easy comprehension and address a wide spectrum of psychiatric and neurologic illnesses, synthesizing information from basic biology and diagnostics to building treatment plans and dealing with complications and comorbidities.
