CME Types/Amount/Availability
 
CME is a separate charge from subscriptions. We have members who do not want CME so we have separate charges for CME and subscriptions. However, CME access requires an active subscription.
 
We offer AMA Category 1 credit for physicians and ASRT CME for cardiac sonographers.
 
Access to the CME exams requires an active subscription to the area (iTEE, eTEE) AND enough CME credits in your account. You can purchase CME credits in your Account.
 
AMA CME is for physcians only and are available in the iTEE, eTEE, EOTD, and COTW areas.
 
ASRT CME is for sonographers and is available in the eTEE area only.
 
The EOTD and COTW exams are included in the content and consist of 4 questions.
The iTEE and eTEE CME exams range from 10 to 40 questions depending upon the length of the chapter.
 
Succesful completion of a CME exam results in a CME certificate that is email to you AND is available in you account, even if your subscription lapses (just login to view your account). For physicians, if you include your information in your personal area we will automatically send your CME certificates to the ACCME on a quarterly basis (April, July, Oct, Jan)

The CME for physicians is AMA Category 1 credit  and can be used for CME requirements for medical licensure and/or privileges for medicine, cardiology, anesthesiology, or echocardiography.  The CME does meet the requirements for the AMA and the National Board of Echocardiography (NBE). Physicians can have (5) attempts at passing a CME Exam.

Selecting the Type of CME
 
Your occupation determines your CME type and area. 
Physicians get AMA Category 1 credit . and Cardiac Sonographers get ASRT CME.
If you occupation is not a physician or a cardiac sonographer then CME is not available.
Physicians can participate in iTEE, eTEE, Echo-of-the-Day, and Case-of-the-Week CME Activities.
Cardiac Sonographers can participate in eTEE CME Activitity only.
 
Subscription Requirements for CME Activity
 
You must have access to the Educational Content for the CME you want to take the exam.
Therefore, you must have an E-Echocardiography subscription that has not expired.
Please note Cardiac Sonographer CME is only for the eTEE section.
 
Activating a CME Session
 
After you log into e-echocardiography you must Activate a CME Session. 
Activating a CME Session will take you to the CME Disclaimer page and remove Advertisements and References to Manufacturers from the Educational Sections. 
To activate a CME Session click on the

When a CME Session is active you will see a CME Disclaimer page and the CME Session link will change to Active CME Session

CME Certificates
 
After the FIRST successful completion of a CME Exam, a link to a cme certificate will be on the cme exam grading page. Click this link and save or print the Adobe Acrobat (pdf) file. After you log in under your account page is a chapter cme page. This page will list your cme certificates. Click the link and the certificate is AUTOMATICALLY downloaded to your computer. Go to your default download directory to retrieve your certificate. Check your browser and computer settings if you don't know where your download directory is located.

For Echo-of-the-Day and Case-of-the-Week there are links in your account for those sections that will provide a summary of the current year or a summary of all years or a link with a summary and all of the certificates in a pdf (Adobe Acrobat) file. If you want to submit the certificate you can download each certificate with the corresponding link on the cme certificate page or you can download all of the certificates (which is what we suggest unless you like to click a link 100-300 times). If you have your ABA number in your account we will submit the cme certificates for you electronically about every quarter.

The CME Bank
 
The CME bank allows users to buy CME credits before taking a CME exam.  Once an exam is passed, the number of CME units awarded is subtracted from the CME bank.  You can purchase additional CME credits at any time before taking the CME exam by go to your account area and purchasing additional CME credits. The CME credits never expire. Just renew your subscrption (if it is expired) and you can use the rest of your CME credits.

Paying for CME
 
You must purchase CME credits for your CME bank before taking a CME exam or CME activity (EOTD or COTW).  When you successfully pass an exam, the CME units are deducted from your CME bank.  When you start a CME exam, we will inform you how many CME credits you have in your bank so you can purchase more credits prior to taking the exam if you need more credits.
