Delegates at the 4th World Parkinson Congress who requested CME, and paid the $30 fee during the registration process, will receive their CME certificate on November 9. It will be emailed directly from the OHSU office of Continuing Education.
If you missed the chance to pay for the CME certificate, and you would still like to earn credits, you may still do so by emailing email@example.com to pay the $30 processing fee. After payment is made, OHSU will be notified and they will process your certificate.
OHSU also recognizes 30.25 hours of accredited training for the program of the 4th World Parkinson Congress. For all other participating professionals (PTs, OTs, SLPs etc.) this program provides a certificate of participation of 30.25 hours for the 4th World Parkinson Congress. Participants should claim only the credit commensurate with the extent of their participation in the activity.
OHSU CME is approved for AMA PRA Category 1 CreditTM.
MDs & DOs: In Oregon physicians must earn 60 hours of CME over the course of two years (OAR 847-008-0070) AMA PRA Category 1 CreditTM or equivalent.
Nurse Practitioners and Registered Nurses: For the purpose of recertification, the American Nurses Credentialing Center accepts AMA PRA Category 1 CreditTM issued by organizations accredited by the ACCME (Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education). For the purposes of relicensure the Oregon State Board of Nursing accepts AMA PRA Category 1 CreditTM for attendance at structured learning activities offered by organizations (in this case: OHSU, Division of CME) accredited by the ACCME. (OAR 851-050-0142).
Physician Assistant: The National Commission on Certification of Physician Assistants (NCCPA) states that the AMA PRA Category 1 CreditsTM are acceptable for continuing medical education requirements for recertification.
Certified Nurse Midwife: The American College of Nurse Midwives has granted reciprocity status for AMA PRA Category 1 CreditTM issued by providers accredited by the ACCME and relevant to midwifery.
Licensed Social Workers: The Oregon Board of Licensed Social Workers accepts AMA PRA Category 1 CreditTM for continuing education requirements.
Many other disciplines such as researchers, PharmD’s, occupational therapists, physical therapists and anes-techs request credit memos for re-licensure or recertification if applicable. Many societies and credentialing bodies accept the AMA PRA Category 1 CreditTM as an equivalent as long as the topic is relevant to the applicant’s field or discipline.
At this time, the WPC is unable to offer CME credit for clinical psychologists or psychologists.
