Self Assessment CME (SA CME)

Self Assessment CME

What exactly is Self Assessment (SA CME) and why should I consider doing it?

Self Assessment (SA) CME is exactly what it sounds like. It is a form of continuing medical education that is designed to help you reflect on your own strengths and weaknesses and analyze the areas of medicine in which you may need to improve. Our Self Assessment CME creates a fun, interactive learning environment while providing outrageous CME value! As of August 2016, the NCCPA made a rule change that stated Self Assessment CME and Performance Improvement CME are no longer a requirement for certified PAs. However, they added the following statement regarding Category 1 CME credit value:

“To encourage PAs to continue to pursue self-assessment activities, NCCPA will award 50% additional credit for all activities designated for self-assessment Category 1 CME credit (i.e., a self-assessment activity worth 10 credits will be converted to 15 credits by NCCPA). Also, the first 20 PI-CME credits logged during every two-year cycle will be doubled when logged with NCCPA.”

CME4LIFE currently offers two forms of Self Assessment CME, the Take Home Self Assessment Challenge and our 5 hr. CORE LIVE Workshops.

Take Home Self Assessment CME – Acute Care, Urgent Care, or Primary Care/General Medicine. (15 hours of AAPA Approved Category 1 SA CME)
