    We know that scheduling time to earn these credits and points isn’t as easy as it sounds, so we polled our physician contributors—course speakers, audio readers, medical writers, medical editors, and medical reviewers—for their advice on earning CME and MOC throughout the year. Here’s how they keep up to date:

    Participate in regular activities such as:

    • Weekly reading topics followed by Q&As
    • CME courses throughout the year, like our IM or Peds Online Review Course!
    • Journal clubs
    • Yearly conferences
    • Grand rounds
    • Online modules
    • Teaching medical students or residents

    Monitor your progress throughout the year by:

    • Setting a goal of CME credits to earn each month
    • Setting monthly reminders for yourself
    • Keeping a running tally of hours earned throughout the year

    We hope these tips help you jump-start on earning all the credits you need for 2021 and beyond!
