CME & SA-CME
- CME is a proof of continued medical education. It can be given for attendance of conference, reading an article or online activity. Physician must complete the requirements for that activity which sometimes include a brief test at the end.
- AMA Category 1 CME: the activity is regulated by and has to fulfill the requirements imposed by ACCME or an ACCME approved medical society.
- AMA Category 2 CME: Unlike Category 1, Category 2 is self reported by the physician for any learning activity that doesn't have Category 1 designation. It is self-reported by the physician, if it took 1 hour it will qualify for 1 credit. It can't be advertised as Category 2 (that's why you will not see "Category 2 CME" on any activity). For example, if you read a medical article that doesn't have CME credits, you can report it as Category 2 CME.
- SA-CME: a different type of CME that assess the physician knowledge and understanding.
