The Geisinger Health System Center for Continuing Professional Development (CPD) serves the educational needs of health care professionals in the integrated health care delivery system and the community. We create courses for doctors, nurses, pharmacists, social workers, imaging technologists, physician assistants, nurse practitioners, dietitians, athletic trainers, counselors, occupational therapists and other members of the health care team.
