Home, Commute Or Travel CME
We understand your need to maximize your time and suggest that you consider studying during "down time" while commuting, at home or even when you travel. We also understand that you may need to create your own learning time frame or environment and these CME courses provide you with choices.
The portability, convenience and flexibility of our audio CD and MP3 formats allow you to choose when and where you study. They are also useful for last-minute licensure needs and the demanding schedules of men and women in medicine who divide their time between family and the office or hospital.
The purpose of the American Medical Seminars, Inc. CME Program is to develop and deliver clinically relevant, evidence-based CME activities in an effort to align physician behavior with current clinical guidelines and the evidence to improve their competence and the care they provide their patients.
AMA PRA Category 1 Credit Certificate
Upon completion of the course you will receive a certificate for AMA PRA Category 1 Credits from American Medical Seminars, Inc. provided the course is successfully completed as designed. Please refer to Certification and Accreditation Statements here online. Your CME certificate will generally be mailed within 2 business days of our receipt of your completed test answer/evaluation form.
The certificate will reflect the course title, credits earned, dates of study (upon request) and the date issued, which will be the date we receive your test answer/evaluation form in our office or postmark date if mailed. Dates of study will only be on your certificate if you report and verify them on your test answer/evaluation form. Testing online gives immediate results with feedback, or you may fax or mail your test answer/evaluation form.
