    • Members: The Academy maintains a cumulative record of all Academy-sponsored AMA PRA Category 1 Credits™ earned by its members for a 10-year period. View your official CME transcript on the Academy’s website. The Academy does not mail CME certificates.
    • Non-Members: The Academy does not provide CME transcripts for non-members but, upon request, will provide verification of credits earned for a single Academy-sponsored CME activity.  You are responsible to verify with your own reporting agencies (professional associations, hospitals, state licensing boards, etc.) whether Academy credits are acceptable.

    Non-Physician Continuing Education Credits

    The Academy will provide a certificate of completion to attendees that indicate the course offers CME so they may request a credit transfer with their certification agency. Attendees will be responsible for knowing their certification requirements.

    The Academy does not maintain a copy of certificates issued.
