    Continuing Medical Education

    Licensed physicians are required by law to earn credits in continuing medical education in order to maintain their medical licenses. For license renewal, physicians must complete 100 credits of continuing medical education (CME) during each renewal period, forty (40) of which must be AMA PRA Category 1 Credit™, the remaining sixty (60) can be AMA PRA Category 1 Credit™ 1 or 2. MSNJ can help members sort through the regulatory requirements.

    AMA PRA Category 1 Credit™ is designated by providers accredited by either MSNJ, the ACCME (Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education) or by another state medical society. AMA PRA Category 2 Credit™ can be claimed for activities that are self-directed learning experiences that improve patient care. Examples include: reading authoritative peer-reviewed literature and consulting with colleagues. Refer to AMA’s Eligibility Requirements for specifics concerning activities that qualify for either AMA PRA Category 1 Credit™ or AMA PRA Category 2 Credit™.

    Physicians are required to maintain records - copies of AMA PRA Category 1 Credit™ awards, certificates or transcripts - for six years. A log/journal should be kept for AMA PRA Category 2 Credit™. An example sufficient for record-keeping of AMA PRA Category 2 Credit™ can be found in MSNJ’s Physician Recognition Award Application.

    MSNJ is recognized by the ACCME to accredit intrastate providers of continuing medical education. See the current list of MSNJ accredited providers. Your membership in the Medical Society of New Jersey helps to support the CME Accreditation Program, whose mission is to assure quality CME for New Jersey physicians.
