Area(s) of Interest: Continuing Medical Education (CME)
Users of the CME certification service offered by the California Medical Association's (CMA) Institute for Medical Quality (IMQ) are now able to check the status of CME credits, keep track of their progress and print their transcripts at their convenience from IMQ's online CME certification user portal.
Physicians are required to complete 50 CME hours during every two-year licensure period, with reporting deadlines based on the physician's personal license renewal date (the last day of the month of the physician's birthday).
IMQ's CME Certification Program documents and verifies physicians' CME activities. When certified by IMQ, physicians' CME credits will automatically be accepted by the California Medical Board, saving you time and hassle. (IMQ also provides documentation of physicians' CME in the event of a medical board audit.)
IMQ's CME certification is $30 for CMA members, $55 for nonmembers. Physicians also can request that their CME certification information be sent to hospitals, health plans, specialty societies, and others for credentialing or membership renewal purposes at no additional charge.
For more information, visit the IMQ website.
