Continuing Education Credits
Two years seems to pass very quickly when you’re not
looking. After a couple of Nuclear Medicine Conferences where one may earn a
handful of Continuing Education Credits, a person tends to become busy with
every day life. Sure, you make a note to yourself that you still have a number
of credits needed to maintain your Nuclear Medicine License, but you assure
yourself that you have plenty of time to fulfill those credits. So why is it
such a surprise when you discover that all that time you thought you had, is
actually about to run out? Thankfully, there are a number of resources at our
disposal from which to draw upon when the end of your license renewal
Of course, there is a mountain of websites that will charge
you for each credit you earn, and if you are truly in a bind, you may just
decide to pay for each one. However, there are also several websites that offer
free CMEs to those of us who are willing to do some research.
If you are a member of the Society of Nuclear Medicine, you
can certainly access their website at www. Snm.org to pick up some needed
credits. Here is a list of free websites that may prove useful if you are in
need of some quick continuing education credits.
1). Cardinalhealth.com (It helps if you actually have an
account with them)
2). Echeloned.com (A GE sponsored site for credits)
(this site has several free tests you may take)
4). The University of Mexico also has a free credit catalog
you can try. You will simply be asked to create a login and password to access
their site. https://hsc-moodle.health.unm.edu.
The site may be a bit tricky, because once you sign on and take a test for
nuclear medicine, your certificate may be located within the pharmacy section
of the site (this happened to me after trying to locate my cme certificate).
I hope this helps those in need of some cme resources. Feel
free to add to the list if you would like. It would be greatly appreciated.
