Medical staff members must earn at least 30 credits (averaged 10 credits per year over the past 36 months) of AMA PRA Category 1 CME credit in sleep medicine. Compliance with CME requirements must be documented.
Medical staff members who have completed a formal training program within the previous 12 months will have their credit requirements waived. Upon completion of a training program, the applicable continuing education requirement in sleep medicine will be prorated based on the end date of the program. Proration based upon date of hire is acceptable for advanced practice provider (NP, PA, APRN) medical staff members. Education sessions conducted at the facility are acceptable for fulfilling this standard provided the session has defined educational objective(s) and attendance is documented by a roster signed by the facility director. See appendix for additional CME opportunities.
