The American Board of Pathology requires 70 AMA PRA Category 1 CME credits. Eighty percent of required CME must be directly related to the diplomate’s scope of practice. The remainder may be in areas of general relevance to medicine (e.g. ethics, practice management, informatics, etc.)
The Alaska State Medical Board requires 50 AMA- or AOA-approved CME credits. For license renewals, at least two of the total hours of CME that are required to qualify for renewal must be specific to pain management and opioid use and addiction. Courses must be category 1 of AMA-approved education or Category 1 or 2 of AOA-approved education. For a podiatrist, it may instead be earned in a continuing medical education program from a provider that is approved by the Council on Podiatric Medical Education (CPME).
In this online self-assessment activity, you'll test your knowledge with more than 1000 Dermatology case-style review questions and earn CME credits as you go. Review your responses with detailed, evidence-based rationales with references.
