Journal CME - obtaining online CME credits...the efficient way
Why Journal CME for YOUR CME claims?
(Non U.S. radiologist and other medical discipline related information found further down)
Meet the new ABR requirements - SA-CMEs
The ABR (American Board of Radiology) implemented new regulations, requiring radiologists to obtain a certain amount of self-assessment CMEs (SA-CME), which de facto replace SAMs. U.S. certified radiologists need to earn 75 CME credits every three years, at least 25 of which must be credits for self-assessment activities. These SA-CMEs require higher standards than regular CMEs, which are outlined on the ABR MOC website.
The PubMed indexed Journal of Radiology Case Reports provides with Journal CME hundreds of such SA-CMEs at the convenience of your mouse click!
Convenient and efficient CME claims
The online CME sections are available when and where YOU need them - anywhere at anytime. You can choose articles of interest to you and start and finish them at your own pace and schedule.
Each article is worth ONE FULL hour of AMA PRA Category 1 Credit™. No more fussing with dozens of 0.25 CME articles that consume your valuable time!
See how easy it is:
Three simple steps!
You save a significant amount of time: no more scheduling, sacrificing your off days, no distant traveling - which means more time for you and your family!
Obtaining CME credits via Journal CME can save you thousands of dollars, taking into account that no expensive course fees, flights and lodging are spent. Even if societies claim to offer free CMEs, please consider how many hundreds of dollars you pay upfront for just being a member!
No more headaches with scheduling and trying to figure out how to use your valuable time off for courses and meetings. Do your CMEs in the comfort of your own home.
We provide CME content that covers the broader field of general Radiology or you can filter your CME content based on subspecialties. So, if you are a neuroradiologist, you may be more interested in and benefit from our Neuroradiology content. We provide sections for all Radiology subspecialties.
Certificates of completion (applies also to non-U.S. radiologists)
Even without purchasing a CME certificate, you may print out special certificates of completion for your self-evaluation tests. These are handy for your CV as well as your institution's requirements (e.g. for internal quality control).
Performance curves (applies also to non-U.S. radiologists)
Our system provides a comprehensive evaluation section demonstrating your performance curve over time in each individual subspecialty. This can be used for your own personal performance check and also for your institutional quality control.
CME for Europeans (ECMEC©)
AMA PRA Category 1 Credits™ claimed by physicians attending events certified and organized in the United States for AMA PRA Category 1 Credits™ can be claimed through the agreement on mutual recognition of credits between UEMS and AMA. This is considered as being equal to the European Continuous Medical Education Credits (ECMEC©) granted by the UEMS. One AMA PRA Category 1 Credits™ is equivalent to one (1) hour of European EACCME Credit (ECMEC©).
Claiming (SA-)CMEs for specialties other than Radiology
Our contents satisfy the requirements for regular AMA PRA Category 1 Credit(s)™ CMEs as well as for "higher value" self-assessment continuing medical education (SA-CME). Each selected journal article is awarded with 1 full hour AMA PRA Category 1 Credit(s)™, so other medical disciplines can also claim their CMEs via this site. Certain medical specialties (such as Radiology) require physicians to earn SA-CMEs beside "regular" CMEs. Please check with your specialty Board about SA-CME requirements.
The CME contents are based on published case reports and provide practical author perspectives in regard to their experienced case scenarios. We want you to put yourself in the author's shoes, so that you can be better prepared for similar scenarios during your own work day.
