Is there CME for EMCrit Wees, PulmCrit, IBCC, EMNerd, etc.
Nope–just for the actual EMCrit PODCASTS
Is my personal information safe?

What is EMCrit's Relation with EB Medicine?
I am on the editorial board of Emergency Medicine Practice. EB Medicine is not affiliated with any pharmaceutical or medical manufacturing company; they strive to provide the best EM education–just like EMCrit.
What type of CME Credits will you get?
AMA Category 1: EB Medicine is accredited by the Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education (ACCME) to provide continuing medical education for clinicians.
AOA Category 2-A and 2-B: EB Medicine's accreditation by the Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education (ACCME) allows AOA 2-a or 2-b credit.
Nurses: See Below.
But I'm not in the US, is this still valuable to me?
The following Countries and Regions have reciprocity with the ACCME:
- European Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education (EU)
- Canadian CFPC Mainpro+ (Canada)
- Bulgarian Union of Scientific Medical Societies (Bulgaria)
- Federation of Royal Colleges of Physicians (UK)
- French National Medical Council (France)
- Italian Federation of Scientific Medical Societies (Italy)
- National CME Commission of the Italian Ministry of Health (Italy)
- Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons of Canada (Canada)
- Spanish Accreditation Council for CME (Spain)
- Bavarian Chamber of Physicians (Germany)
but please check with your local medical boards before assuming the credits will be valid for you.
In addition, EMCrit CME is applicable for points for Fellows of the Australian College of Rural and Remote Medicine. One core PDP point per hour up to 30 points maximum per triennium.
Specifically for European Physicians
The American Medical Association has an agreement of mutual recognition of Continuing Medical Education (CME) credits with the European Union of Medical Specialists (UEMS), the accreditation body for European countries. Physicians interested in converting AMA PRA Category 1 Credit™ to UEMS-European Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education CME credits (ECMEC®s) should contact the UEMS at [firstname.lastname@example.org].
Are you a provider of MOC Credits (ABIM, ABA, etc.)
We cannot submit your credits for you to organizations that require it
But I'm a nurse, are you offering CE credits for RNs?
Hells yeah! We have received accreditation for Nursing CME through the California Board of Registered Nursing. Every other state we have checked with has accepted this certification, but confirm with your own Nursing Board if you have any questions.
How about Nurse Practitioners (NPs)?
According to the American Nurses Credentialing Center (ANNC), part of the ANA; these credits are applicable to NPs as they are ACCME approved.
How about Physician Assistants (PAs)?
All AMA category I CME is eligible for your CME requirements.
But I'm a paramedic or EMT, what about CE credits for me?
We will not be pursuing formal ems-specific certification. Many EMS services will accept proof of a valid CME with AMA Credits without formal EMS certification of the activity. Please check with your service and then sign up.
What are my CME Requirements?
EB Medicine has an excellent free site listing CME requirements by Profession and State
How Many Hours Will I get? Which Episodes will be CME-eligible?
Every true Podcast (there are 25 per year) will be offered for 1 hour of credit, so 25 hours per year = $4 per credit hour which is one of the best AV CME deals out there. But forget that, I want folks who want to support the show, not folks who are shopping for the best CME deal.
What Happened to my CME Courses (My membership Expired)
You need to print out your certificates prior to your membership expiring, unfortunately there is no provision to allow us to provide your records after expiration. If you re-up your membership, all of your old certificates will be there.
