Continuing Medical Education (CME)
Continuing Medical Education (CME) is one of the key components of accreditation. Annually, Medical and Technical staff need to earn 15 CMEs. Please note, physicians must earn AMA Category (CAT) 1 credit.
Technologists and physicians CME requirements vary depending on their credential, however all staff must earn CME to meet the accreditation standards.
For vascular labs, all staff need 15 CMEs and physicians are required to earn AMA CAT 1 credit.
We offer on-site CME classes including:
