Do I Need CME for Radiology?

What type of online radiology CME credits meet your annual licensing requirements? Oakstone CME highlights five of its top courses.

All doctors have annual licensing requirements for continuing medical education. Radiologists have additional demands placed on them when it comes to radiology CME credits.

Explore how radiologists are regulated and how Oakstone CME can help you find the best fit for your continuing education needs.

Understand Your Credit Requirements

What sets radiologists apart from other medical doctors is that they are also regulated by the American Board of Radiology (ABR). The ABR has its own Maintenance of Certification (MOC) program that requires radiologists to earn 75 CME credits every three years.

The ABR requires radiologists to earn 25 of those credits from self-assessment CME activities. These generally consist of podium presentations, with post-session assessments, at live events held by the Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education (ACCME). These credits can also be earned at ACCME-accredited Category 1 CME provider events. 2022 is the last year radiologists will be asked to complete this self-assessment requirement.

The other 50 credits can come from enduring AMA Category 1 CreditsTM. “Enduring material” is defined as certified CME that is relevant for a specified time period. After 2022, all 75 credits required by the ABR must be earned through these materials.

All Oakstone CME courses fall into the AMA Category 1 CreditsTM. We know that one size does not fit all when it comes to busy medical professionals, so there are many options to choose from regarding your CME requirements.
