CME Accreditation

The American Academy of Family Physicians (AAFP) has reviewed the Canton CME Roadshow & KSA and deemed it acceptable for up to 12.50 Live AAFP Prescribed credits (4.5 credits for the morning CME and 8 credits for the KSA). Physicians should claim only the credit commensurate with the extent of their participation in the activity.

AAFP Prescribed credit is accepted by the American Medical Association (AMA) as equivalent to AMA PRA Category 1 credit(s)™ toward the AMA Physician’s Recognition Award (PRA). When applying for the AMA PRA, Prescribed credit earned must be reported as Prescribed, not as Category 1.

Physicians that participate in the KSA will receive 10 points from the ABFM and an additional 8 live Prescribed CME credits from the American Academy of Family Physicians (AAFP).
