For physicians practicing in most states (what gives, Indiana?), obtaining continuing medical education credits is a necessity, like it or not. For license registration, 54 boards require anywhere from 12 hours (Alabama) to 50 hours (a few states) of CME per year. We know you’re all busier than ever, and burnt out more than ever, so obtaining these credits by attending society annual meetings is increasingly difficult and inconvenient. And getting those credits, be it online, through medical journals, or in person, can be really expensive.
Lucky for you, your good friends at Physician’s Weekly have partnered with AKH, Inc. Advancing Knowledge in Healthcare to provide you with free, 0.50-credit CME activities. The types of feature articles you’ve been reading all along on physiciansweekly.com and/or on the posters hanging in your facility now have CME attached to them.
All you have to do is read the articles (and their accompanying figures or tables), link over to the AKH website, complete a quick, one-time registration with AKH, and complete a three-question post-test. That’s it!
