The gold standard for physicians in CME is AMA PRA Category 1™ credit. In the United States, AMA PRA Category 1™ credit can only be awarded by the AMA or by an organization that is accredited by the Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education (ACCME) to award accredited CME. The Institute for Advanced Medical Education (IAME) has been accredited by the ACCME to provide AMA PRA Category 1™ credits for physicians.
In most states, Sonographers, Nurse Practitioners, Physician Assistants, Registered Nurses, and others can also use AMA PRA Category 1™ CME for the purposes of recertification.** Please check with your certifying board before proceeding with IAME’s CME Activities.
