What are the CME requirements for membership?

Active and Supporting (FP) members must submit at least 150 credits every three calendar years. This is called a re-election cycle. The 150 credits must include at least 75 Prescribed credits and 25 from live learning activities. An exemption of the 25 credits of live activity is allowed for members who submit evidence that they are providing medical care in a missionary/charitable practice setting in an overseas practice for more than a 12-month period.
Those in other membership categories are not required to report CME but may do so to maintain a centralized location for their CME Record.
