The Importance of Continuing Medical Education (CME)
As a sonographer, staying up-to-date with the latest advancements and techniques in the field is crucial. Continuing Medical Education (CME) plays a vital role in ensuring that sonographers remain competent and proficient in their practice. In this article, we will explore the requirements for CME every triennium and emphasize the importance of continuous learning.
Requirements for CME Every Triennium
Sonographers are required to complete a certain number of CME credits within a three-year period, commonly known as a triennium. The specific requirements may vary depending on the professional association and certifying body. However, the general consensus is that sonographers should aim to accumulate a certain number of credits to maintain their certification and enhance their knowledge and skills.
