Continuing Medical Education (CME)

The Rocky Mountain Rural Trauma Symposium was unable to obtain Category 1 CME credits this year.  Should the medical attendee so choose, attendance at this conference can qualify for self-reported, self-documented AMA PRA Category 2-Type Activities CME hours.

AMA PRA Credit System

The AMA PRA Credit System demonstrates a physician has participated in continuing medical education (CME) activities that meet the requirements of state medical boards, medical specialty societies, specialty boards, hospital medical staffs, the Joint Commission, insurance groups, and others.

AMA PRA Category 2 Credit™ is self-designated and self-claimed by individual physicians for participation in educational activities not certified for AMA PRA Category 1 Credit™ that meet the following criteria:

  1. Comply with the AMA definition of CME
  2. Comply with relevant AMA ethical opinions
  3. Are non-promotional
  4. Are a worthwhile learning experience related to a physician’s practice, as determined by the physician

Examples of learning activities that might meet the requirements for AMA PRA Category 2 Credit™ include:

  • Unstructured online searching and learning (i.e., not Internet point-of-care)
  • Reading authoritative medical literature
  • Consultation with peers and medical experts
  • Self-assessment activities
  • Medical writing
  • Preceptorship participation
  • Peer review and quality assurance participation

Accredited CME providers must not certify activities for AMA PRA Category 2 Credit™ and may not advertise that an activity qualifies or is eligible for AMA PRA Category 2 Credit™.  Each physician is responsible for claiming and maintaining a record of their AMA PRA Category 2 Credit™.

Recording AMA PRA Category 2 Credit™ activities is important, as these credits may count toward meeting the requirements for the AMA Physician’s Recognition Award, as well as for licensing and other credentialing requirements. Physicians should contact licensing and other credentialing entities directly to determine the number and type of credits required.
