If you are a Hopkins faculty member who teaches in an accredited Liaison Committee on Medical Education (LCME) or Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education (ACGME) course or program), you may be eligible to earn AMA PRA Category 1 credit for teaching new content or applying a new pedagogy/teaching style to the learning environment.
AMA has authorized CME providers to certify and approve a new category of American Medical Association Physician’s Recognition Award credit (AMA PRA Category 1 credit): Learning from Teaching for academic endeavors in undergraduate medical education (UME) and graduate medical education (GME).
Physician faculty/teachers may be awarded credit based on a 2-to-1 ratio to teaching time. AMA PRA Category 1 Credit will only be awarded for teaching that is verified by the UME and/or GME office. (Faculty may not receive credit more than once for the same time period, even if the audience involves residents and students from more than one program, being verified by two or more different LCME/ACGME programs.)
This type of credit is not available to all educators in all programs. In addition to the institution being ACGME accredited, the residency/fellowship program itself must also be ACGME accredited in order for faculty to be awarded AMA PRA Category 1 Credit™ for teaching residents/fellows in that program
