CME Credits in Canada

The credits that we have are continuing education credits for professionals who are already practicing medicine, not credits for college students.

A few weeks ago I was in touch with the RCPSC and received the following answer as to whether doctors in Canada can use AMA credits for relicensing:

Being that SUNY Downstate Medical Center is a joint-sponsor of our program, is a physicians organization (as defined by the Royal College) and is accredited by the ACCME, Canadian physicians attending Medicine and Morals may record MOC Section 1 credits. This applies to all provinces in Canada and there is no need to have this program reviewed for accreditation by one of the Royal CollegeAccredited CPD Providers.

I am in touch with the Royal College about how to report credits. I will update you as soon as I hear back from them.
