About SMJ CME

  • The overall goal of the Southern Medical Journal CME Program is to provide physicians with convenient, quality continuing medical education. By providing this format, it is expected that participants will increase their knowledge about current advances in all fields of medicine and immediately apply this knowledge into practice in order to enhance patient outcomes.


  • The Southern Medical Association is accredited by the Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education (ACCME) to provide continuing medical education for physicians.


  • The Southern Medical Association designates each journal-based CME activity for a maximum of 1 AMA PRA Category 1 Credit.™ Physicians should claim only the credit commensurate with the extent of their participation in the activity.
