CME Form Revisions
- Slightly shorter application and less attachments are required

On January 1, 2016, the Office of Continuing Medical Education rolled out a new process to earn and claim CME credit for all activities. This change provides better accuracy, faster recording of CME credits, and immediate accessibility at your fingertips. This change does require participants attending all activities certified for CME to log into the system and confirm their time in attendance.
