Finally: Category 1 CME’s for Literature Research!

by James D. Hundley, MD

It’s about time!   Finally, orthopaedic surgeons and other physicians can get Category 1 CME’s for doing literature research.    Not only does that help you but it helps your patients.  Heretofore it has been that you could do your reading and get Category 2 CME’s, but not Category 1.

Who’s to say that it’s better to sit in a lecture at an accredited meeting than to study a peer-reviewed article in a respected journal?  Not only does this let orthopaedic surgeons and others get the CME’s that they need for licensure and hospital privileges but it let’s them do it when they need it, on their own time, about a subject of current interest, and economically to boot.

What else needs to be said?  It’s available at for[CME].  Check it out for yourself.
