About Us

The Carlat CME Institute is dedicated to encouraging unbiased and high quality medical education. We believe that the vast majority of medical education should be funded without support from drug or device companies. Over the past couple of decades, many physicians have become addicted to pharmaceutical industry perks, including lucrative promotional speaking contracts, marketing consulting jobs, and free CME. But industry-sponsored education is never actually “free”– it comes at the cost of subtle promotional agendas that make their way into classes, despite all the regulations of the ACCME (the Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education). We believe it is time for doctors to take control of their education away from drug and medical device companies.

Our History:

The Carlat CME Institute is a subsidiary of Carlat Publishing, LLC. Carlat Publishing was founded in 2002 by Daniel Carlat in order to publish an unbiased CME newsletter for psychiatrists, The Carlat Psychiatry Report. Before the first issue was published in January of 2003, Dr. Carlat had resigned from drug company speaker’s panels, because he realized that he was being paid to market specific drugs, rather than to deliver medical education. In 2010, Carlat Publishing added a second CME newsletter to its portfolio, The Carlat Child Psychiatry Report. In 2014, it added The Carlat Addiction Treatment Report.

What We Do:

We are accredited by the ACCME to provide AMA PRA Category 1 credit. We provide this CME both through our own publications and by jointly sponsoring medical courses developed by other organizations. We also track developments in the regulatory landscape of the CME world, publishing articles and news items on the website and The Carlat CME Blog.
