Interprofessional Continuing Education Credits (IPCE)

WMed provides IPCE credits at selected activities. All learners are eligible to receive this type of credit.

All Learners

General attendance credit is available at all activities.  If the activity is not accredited for your profession, you can still receive attendance credit which may count towards your professional licensing or certification requirements.

Michigan Board of Medicine CME Credit Categories

The Michigan Board of Medicine has recently updated its categories to align more closely with those described by the AMA.  A full description of all categories can be found here.

WMed provides Category 1A credit to all physicians, including residents, attending accredited activities. Other health professionals (e.g. nurses or PAs) can claim this type of credit; however, because they are not eligible for AMA PRA Category 1 Credit™, their credit will be recorded as "attendance." All attendees can access their transcripts through our Portal at any time. We recommend that learners receiving attendance credit save copies of the certificates of attendance for their records as the transcript may not contain all of the information required for submitting their educational credits.

Upon request, WMed residents may receive Category 1D credit. The CE Office does not automatically apply this credit to residents. Please contact us if you wish/require this credit.

WMed does not document and/or track Category 1B, 1C, or Category 2A-H credit. Physicians who wish to claim credit in these categories are required to keep their own records of these credits.
