QUESTIONS ON CREDIT CERTIFICATES

Back to top
  • CME Tracker
    • What is the CME Tracker?
      The CME Tracker allows logged in users to keep a history of CME earned and it:
      • Automatically reflects and posts certificates for all Online CME earned on pri-med.com 
      • Includes copies of your Live CME certificates, 4 weeks post Meeting 
      • Includes "Add Activity" feature so you may enter any credits earned at other Meetings 
      • Features one-click "Print Summary" summarizing all credits you've earned 
      • Displays your credit requirements based on the states of licensure and degree information you entered during registration.

     

  • Online CME Credit Certificates
    • How do I apply for credit for a completed Online CME activity?
      At the end of each Online CME Activity there will be an Evaluation form. Once you have submitted your evaluation of the activity you will land on the Claim Credit page. From there, you may claim credit hours for the activity as well as credit type (if applicable). Please note that some Online CME activities may require you to pass a posttest prior to receiving the Evaluation or Claim Credit pages.

    • How quickly can I get my certificate?
      Once you have claimed credit for an Online CME activity you will be able to instantly view or print your certificate from the CME Tracker page (go to "My Account" page and click "CME Tracker"). You will need the free Adobe® Acrobat® reader to view the certificates (see CME Tracker for more information).

    • I completed the online activity, but cannot see the Online CME certificate in my CME Tracker.
      You may NOT have actually claimed credit for the completed activity. To verify, login, go to the "My Activities" page. Under the "Online CME Activities" section, if the link reads "Resume" next to the activity, click the link to be taken to the activity. On the left navigation, you will see a "Claim Credit" link (you must have completed each section of the activity). Click this link to get to the "Claim Credit" page. Select your credit type i.e. AMA Category 1 and then click "Certify for Credit". You will then land on the CME Tracker page where your certificate will automatically appear for you to view and print.

    • What types of credit is offered for Online CME activities on pri-med.com?
      The information page of each activity defines the type and amount of credit the activity has been designated for under "Accreditation."
    • What do I do if I am having difficulties viewing my certificate?
      You will need the free Adobe® Acrobat® reader to view the certificates. If you have difficulties opening your certificate, try to save it to your desktop and then open it from there.

     

  • Live Program CME Credit Certificates
    • Will copies of CME certificates from Pri-Med live Meetings be available online?
      Yes. To provide you with your certificate quickly, while being environmentally conscious, we have adopted a web-based system. For most Pri-Med Meetings, if we have your email on file you will no longer receive a mailed copy of the certificate. Within four weeks following the Meeting, we will post to the attendee's CME Tracker an electronic copy of certificates earned at Pri-Med live Meetings dating back to September 2004. You will receive an email notification when certificates are available online.

  • Error on CME Credit Certificates
    • I received my credit certificate, but there is an error. How can it be corrected?
      Copies of all credit certificates earned through Pri-Med – live, online or print CE Meetings – are automatically posted online within your personal CME Tracker. Simply, login into your account (if you are unsure you have an account click here), go to the My Account page and verify your account information is correct. The information provided here is what appears on your online certificate. Once you have updated your information, click the CME Tracker link and click "print certificate" next to the certificate to view and print the updated certificate. If you are having issues, call Customer Service at 1-877-4PRIMED.
