For CME Providers
Accredited education/continuing medical education (CME) is one of the primary means to ensure that physicians are supported in their efforts to maintain competency after residency. The MMA is dedicated to facilitating accredited education that promotes evidence-based change, professional development, and improved patient outcomes. To do so, the MMA offers accredited education programs that are customer-focused, straightforward and cost effective.
Joint Providership is the process by which two organizations, one an accredited continuing medical education (CME) provider and one not, form a partnership to plan, implement and evaluate an activity approved for AMA PRA Category 1 Credit™. As the accredited provider, the MMA will work with you throughout each step to ensure compliance with all necessary requirements while building quality educational activities. You will maintain control of what matters: content development, budget, logistics, marketing, revenue generation and on-site management.
Maintenance of Certification
Through ACCME’s collaboration with American Board of Medical Specialties (ABMS) member boards the Maintenance of Certification (MOC) process has been simplified and MMA is pleased to offer MOC points for the following:
