Participating in certified continuing medical education (CME) activities is critical to fulfilling this professional commitment to lifelong learning. As attendees of CME activities, physicians should:
- Select activities that are of high quality and are appropriate for the physician’s educational needs.
- Choose activities that are carried out in keeping with ethics guidance and applicable professional standards.
- Claim only the credit commensurate with the extent of participation in the CME activity.
- Decline any subsidy offered by a commercial entity other than the physician’s employer to compensate the physician for time spent or expenses of participating in a CME activity.
