CME Credits

How do you earn CME credits?
The American Academy of Child and Adolescent Psychiatry is accredited by the Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education (ACCME) to provide continuing medical education for physicians.  AACAP designates each of its educational activities for a maximum number of AMA PRA Category 1 Credits. Physicians should claim only the credit commensurate with the extent of their participation in the activity.

How are CME credits calculated?
CME credit is designed on an hour-for-hours basis, so for every hour one spends in an educational activity, one would receive 1 CME credit.  Many activities include breaks or other activities that do not qualify for CME credit.  These hours are not included when determining the total hours of credit for the activity.  In addition, each physician should claim only those hours of credit that he/she actually spent in the educational activity.
