CME training

Comunità di Venezia is a training body accredited by the Veneto Region for Continuing Medical Education, within which context the cooperative has applied for provisional accreditation as an “CME Provider” and therefore recognised by the Veneto Region as a training body that can assign training credits for ongoing medical-related education, with the aim of applying for standard accreditation.

Projects and Collaborations

Training, understood in a broad sense, occurs not only in institutional learning contexts, but whenever a project is implemented – in collaboration with other bodies and organizations – that allows those concerned to know other realities, learn from existing good practices, and to develop professionally through shared experiences.


In its 30-year history, Comunità di Venezia S.C.S. has created close partnership and collaboration ties with many partners that can be divided into at least four categories: public and private institutions, universities and research institutes, federations and networks at a European or international level, cultural and voluntary associations, consortia and cooperatives.
