In order to maintain a medical license, CME, or Continuing Medical Education, is often required. It's important to keep up with the latest innovations in medicine in order to provide the best care to your patients, and CME helps healthcare professionals do just that.
Because Continuing Medical Education programs are geared towards specific areas of medicine, it's important to check with your state laws to make sure you are meeting CME requirements for your field. Currently, Continuing Medical Education programs are regulated in the United States by the Accreditation for Continuing Medical Education (ACCME).
Choosing the right program and making sure you are receiving credit for the courses and programs you participate in are both very important, and it is advised that you choose CME programs based on information you receive directly from ACCME.
