The American Academy of Family Physicians Board of Directors recently approved a change to its CME membership requirement.
Previously, members could claim a maximum number of credits for individual activities such as published research, clinical research, paper presentations, exhibit presentations, medical writing, peer review, and writing test questions. Effective immediately, these activities can be reported simply as scholarly activities and will qualify as Prescribed credit. Members may claim a maximum of 100 credits in this area per re-election cycle.
As a reminder, AAFP members must also obtain a minimum of 25 credits from live learning activities every three years to meet the AAFP’s CME membership requirement. If you have questions about this CME requirement change, contact the AAFP or call 800.274.2237.
