The author discusses the advantages and disadvantages of small and big sessions of Continuing Medical Education (CME). He opines that the disadvantage of large CMEs is that one need not be so attentive as the speaker addresses a large audience whereas in small CMEs, one has to be alert and attentive. The author comments that the speaker often addresses the question from a doctor as if it were a general one in small sessions and finally states that it is a waste of time to attend small sessions.
