CME Credits

How to Spend Your CME Money

CME money refers to the funds spent on educational activities designed to maintain a health practitioner’s medical knowledge and license to practice. Sometimes called a “CME allowance,” CME money facilitates the earning of CME credits awarded by accredited organizations for a practitioner’s participation in CME activities. These sponsored activities are a valuable opportunity for practitioners to update their medical skills and develop professionally. CME money allows medical professionals to keep up with the latest advancements without having to pay for educational experiences or materials out of their own pocket.

No matter how you decide to earn credit, maintain up-to-date records and monitor credit-earning goals with CME Seminars’ CertStore. A convenient way to organize CME documentation and track progress, CertStore is free to anyone who creates a CME Seminars profile.

What Can CME Money Be Used For?

CME Conferences

Travel seminars are a great way to advance your career and develop professionally. They also offer a fun and fulfilling way to spend your CME allowance and earn credit. These live events are perfect for networking, collaborating with peers and taking time to relax. Accredited travel CME conferences include a range of topics and offer comprehensive overviews of the medical issues affecting practitioners most.

Make the most of your CME allowance by choosing conferences that offer meaningful learning experiences at an enjoyable venue.
