AMA amends its CME ethics policy

Share this article:

The American Medical Association adopted a change to its ethical policy on CME at the AMA House of Delegates meeting last month. “Physicians should strive to further their medical education throughout their careers,” the newly amended policy reads, adding, “Participating in certified CME activities is critical,” and that attendees should decline any subsidy offered by a commercial entity other than the physician's employer.

“AMA did the right thing here encouraging physicians to participate in continuing education programs that meet existing ACCME and PhRMA guidelines,” said John Kamp, executive director, Coalition for Healthcare Communication.
