What is a CME?
The Continuing Medical Education Unit (CME) is a nationally recognized unit of measurement awarded to participants in a qualifying continuing medical education program. One CME is defined as 10 contact hours in an organized education activity. For instance, if a presentation is six hours long, participants will receive 0.6 CEUs.
CMEs awarded by The NCCMEA National Council on Continuing Medical Education Assessment are generic continuing medical education units, which may or may not apply to specific CME requirements of some professional organizations. CMEs should not be confused with academic credits, which are usually earned for educational experiences involving readings, projects, and some form of final evaluation such as a test or paper.
In order for a program to offer CMEs, it must uphold these criteria:
Responsible sponsorship. The organization is offering continuing education consistent with its mission and has the professional resources to provide quality programming.
Capable direction. The program is well-organized and its structure fosters sharing and applying knowledge.
Qualified Instruction. The program has academic content and the presenter(s) have credentials relevant to the topic(s) being presented.
