QA&A News – CME/CPD Compliance

Dear Friends and Colleagues,

This message just acts as a reminder to all our Members and Fellows to obtain adequate points of CME/CPD when there is still about 2 months to the end of 3 year QA cycle (2014 – 2016).

To ensure you can obtain the CME Certificate every year, do remember that you have to be satisfied with 30 CME/CPD points; and for the QA Certificate every 3 years, it requires no less than 60 CME points and at least 30 CPD points, in a 3 year cycle. All HKAM Fellows are required to obtain the minimum of 90 points, including at least 15 CPD points and no less than 75 CME points, in a 3-year cycle.
