CME Tracking/Credentialing:  Physicians are required to complete 50 CME hours during every two-year licensure period. CMA’s Institute for Medical Quality’s CME Certification Program documents and verifies physicians’ CME activities. CME certification for members is $33 annually ($57 for nonmembers). 

Users of the CME certification service are now able to check the status of CME credits, keep track of their progress and print their transcripts at their convenience fom IMQ's online CME certification user portal.

When certified by IMQ, physicians’ CME credits will automatically be accepted by the medical board, saving you time and hassle. (IMQ also provides documentation of physicians’ CME in the event of a medical board audit.)

Physicians also can request that their CME certification information be sent to hospitals, health plans, specialty societies, and others for credentialing or membership renewal purposes, without additional charge. Call 415-882-5151 or visit for more information.
