How to claim Category 1 CME Credit
MDLinx participants may be able to claim credit for reading Article Summaries ("Reading Activity") during a given month. Reading Activity may be designated for, and credit awarded to physicians in, 15 minute or 0.25 credit increments with a maximum of 20 credits claimed for all PoC CME per calendar year. Here's how MDLinx PoC CME works:
- At the beginning of each month, MDLinx will send you an email invitation to apply for CME credit for your Reading Activity during the prior month.
- The email invitation will contain a link that will direct you to a page containing a list of MDLinx article summaries you read during the immediate prior month.
- You can claim articles for category 1 CME credit by selecting the checkbox next to the article title.
- For each article selected, you must provide information on how you applied what you learned from this article to your education or practice.
- You can select up to 12 articles to claim for up to 1.5 Category 1 CME Credits monthly (20 articles and 2.5 Credits in November and December). The page will capture and track the number of credits selected. Each article selected is worth .125 credits, and the user must select at least 2 articles to qualify to receive Cat 1 CME credits.
- Once you have finished selecting articles to claim, you will be shown a summary of your responses, where you will indicate how many credits you wish to claim for the activity (up to the maximum calculated based on the number of Article Summaries read within the month).
- Upon submitting the required information, you will receive an email with a credit certificate.
