Claiming CME Credit

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. As documentation of your certification, the AMA will require either a copy of your certification letter from ABIM or a copy of your new ABIM certificate.

For more information and to download the AMA direct credit application, visit the AMA website. Mail or fax your completed application to the AMA, along with:

  1. A copy of your new ABIM certificate


  2. A copy of the certification notification letter you received from ABIM

Note: The AMA will charge a fee for this service. The amount of CME credit will vary based on the certificate issue date.
