The AMA recognizes the educational effort associated with successfully completing an American Board of Medical Specialties (ABMS) member board certification process. Upon achievement of your ABIM Board Certification in internal medicine or a subspecialty, you will be eligible to claim AMA PRA Category 1 CME Credits™ directly from the AMA.
For more information, visit the AMA website and download the Direct Credit application. As documentation of your certification, the AMA will require either:
- A copy of your new ABIM certificate
- A copy of the certification notification letter you received from ABIM
Note: The AMA will charge a fee for this service.
