Continuing Medical Education Programs:
Category 2 CME
AMA PRA Category 2 Credit™ activities
AMA PRA Category 2 Credit is defined as all educational activities not designated for Category 1 that: comply with the AMA definition of CME; comply with the AMA ethical opinions on Gifts to Physicians from Industry and on Ethical Issues in CME (i.e., are not promotional); and a physician finds to be a worthwhile learning experience related to his/her practice. Accredited providers do not designate activities for AMA PRA Category 2 Credit.
Physicians may claim AMA PRA Category 2 Credit for such learning activities as: teaching residents, medical students or other health professionals; unstructured online searching and learning (i.e., not Internet PoC); reading authoritative medical literature; or participating in live activities not designated for AMA PRA Category 1 Credit. Other examples include:
- Consultation with peers and medical experts
- Small group discussions
- Self assessment activities
- Medical writing
In each case, the physician individually determines the educational value of those AMA PRA Category 2 activities in which he or she participates.
Documentation: self documented; physicians should self claim credit for appropriate AMA PRA Category 2 activities on their AMA PRA certificate application form.
Credit assignment: as with live activities, physicians may self claim one (l) AMA PRA Category 2 Credit for each 60-minute hour engaged in the learning activity. Physicians may claim credit in 15 minute, or 0.25 credit increments, and round to the nearest quarter hour.
