AMA Category 1 Program Requirements

Monday, June 15, 2009 at 9:10:06 AM

The Education Committee is changing the application form for local programs receiving AMA Category 1 credits. This is necessary to comply with the stricter guidelines from the AMA and Medical Society of State of New York. Programs applying for credits must supply evidence as to educational needs that underlie the professional practice gaps of learners, i.e. gaps in performance, knowledge or competence. There must also be a method to test effectiveness following the program. Direct payment to faculty by commercial supporters is prohibited, and faculty and planners must disclose any financial relationships with a commercial interest. Please contact Dr. Jewell or Terry Clift for more information.
