About Continuing Medical Education (CME)

  • For an activity to be certified to offer CME credit, the AMA (American Medical Association) requires the activity provide an assessment of the learner that measures achievement of the educational purpose and/or objective of the activity.

  • A customer can claim CME anytime between the purchase date of the product and the CME expiration date of the product. The CME application date will default to the current date but can be changed. This date will be the one listed on the awarded CME certificate. We cannot future-date a CME certificate, or date them past the expiration date of the product.
  • No, customers are free to “split” the CME credits for a particular product. Example: Customer purchased the newest Flashcard product and needs 25 CME credits this year and 25 next year. That customer can request to split the available credits (50). A separate application is required with each CME submission and all submissions must be received before the CME expiration date.
  • CME credits are available at no charge for original purchasers who buy currently accredited products or courses directly from MedStudy. Apply for your CME credits online and receive your CME certificate immediately via email.

    MedStudy is accredited by the Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education (ACCME) to provide continuing medical education for physicians. MedStudy designates the educational activities described on this website for their respective maximums of AMA PRA Category 1 Credit(s)™.

    On each CME application, the user certifies how many credits s/he has earned (1 hour = 1 credit) up to the total AMA PRA Category 1 Credit(s)™ allowed for each product or course. The CME application, which includes an evaluation and posttest, is completed online. Once submitted, the CME certificate is immediately emailed to the customer.

    Credits must be claimed before the product’s CME expiration date.
