FAQ: What is the difference between CMEs and CEUs?
- VCU Health Continuing Medical Education is accredited by the Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education (ACCME)
- CME credit for physicians only (AMA PRA Category 1 CreditTM ) is computed and awarded on an hour for hour basis for participation in the content, exclusive of housekeeping, instructions and social amenities (e.g, welcome announcements, coffee breaks, etc.)
- Non-physicians who attend a CME-designated activity are provided a Certificate of Participation which delineates that they attended an activity with so many CME credits; they do not actually GET CME credit, only a certificate which verifies how much that activity was designated for, and they take that documentation to their own professional body for determination of equivalency. In this case, we only report the number of CME credits and do not undertake any equivalency verification or computation. This documentation is generally sufficient for most non-physician participants.
- VCU Health Continuing Medical Education is not accredited to designate "Nursing Contact Hours" as defined by the American Nurse Credentialing Center, or ANCC nursing contact hours. ( http://www.nursecredentialing.org/ ), However, ANCC accepts AMA PRA Category 1 CreditsTM from organizations accredited by the ACCME for your CME contact hour requirements for recertification. ANCC recognizes credit in terms of hours so 1.0 Category 1 Credit is equal to ANCC 60 minutes (1 hour) of learning. Check with your credentialing center on how to report your credit received from this activity.
