MSD directly sponsors and jointly sponsors with organizations such as hospitals, community health organizations, specialty societies, and other health care organizations to provide CME for physicians.
The AMA defines CME (AMA Physician's Recognition Award and Credit System, 2010 Revision) as educational activities which serve to maintain, develop, or increase the knowledge, skills and professional performance and relationships that a physician uses to provide services for patients, the public or the profession. The content of CME is the body of knowledge and skills generally recognized and accepted by the profession as within the basic medical sciences, the discipline of clinical medicine, and the provision of health care to the public.
Organizations seeking MSD-sponsorship or joint-sponsorship for CME activities, such as conferences, symposia, lectures, grand rounds, case review conferences, journal clubs, journal articles, departmental scientific meetings, seminars, and workshops are encouraged to contact the Office of Professional and Public Education four to six months prior to the activity.
MSD will provide you with a CME Application and supporting documentation that will assist in the planning, development and evaluation of your activity. Approval of your application is subject to review by members of the Professional and Public Education and Advocacy Committee for compliance with ACCME Essentials and Standards.
