Continuing Education Contact Hours

Conference attendees can earn 22+ continuing education contact hours:

  • CME - Continuing Medical Education. This activity has been planned and implemented in accordance with the Essential Areas and Policies of the Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education through the joint sponsorship of the Morehouse School of Medicine and MAGI.
    The Morehouse School of Medicine is accredited by the ACCME to provide continuing medical education for physicians.
    The Morehouse School of Medicine designates this live activity for a maximum of 22 hours in AMA PRA Category 1 credits™. Only physicians are eligible for AMA PRA Category 1 credits™. However, others may receive a certificate stating that they participated in an activity that is eligible for the credits. Physicians and others should claim only credit commensurate with the extent of their participation in the activity. (Speakers: See note at bottom of page.)
    In accordance with the ACCME Standards for Commercial Support of CME, the Morehouse School of Medicine implemented mechanisms, prior to the planning and implementation of this CME activity, to identify and resolve conflicts of interest for all individuals in a position to control content of this CME activity.
  • CNE - Continuing Nursing Education. The California Board of Registered Nursing (CBRN) has accredited MAGI to provide continuing nursing education, provider # CEP16387. Certification of contact hours confers recognition of continuing nursing education only and does not imply CBRN endorsement of any commercial product. (Speakers: See note at bottom of page.)
  • CLE/MCLE - Continuing Legal Education. It is impractical for us to obtain timely CLE pre-approval for the conference, so check with your state board for individual application. To obtain CLE credits, copy the certificate of attendance and personalized schedule in your conference book and submit them to your state association with the appropriate application form.
  • CCB - Compliance Certification Board. Approval is pending for Compliance Certification Board (CCB) Continuing Education Units in Compliance Training and Education and Auditing and Monitoring for Compliance (CHC, CHRC, CHPC, CCEP-I). Granting of prior approval in no way constitutes endorsement by CCB of the program content or the program sponsor. (Speakers: See note at bottom of page.)
  • CEU - Continuing Education Units. Ten CNE contact hours equal one nursing CEU contact hour. Various other professional associations and licensing boards accept CNE contact hours. Check with your association or board.

* Some states calculate MCLE/CLE contact hours based on 50 minutes per hour and others based on 60 minutes per hour. The calculation may also vary by association. MAGI counts actual minutes (e.g., 45 minutes for a 45-minute session), except four-hour workshops are assumed to have one 15-minute break that is not counted. CME and CNE contact hours are counted in this way, per our continuiing education partners. CCB contact hours are counted differently, per above. For others, check with your state or association.

Participants can download their personalized schedule and a certificate of attendance at the Personalized Conference Book page. Participants who sign up for CME/CNE/CCB contact hours and submit the Session & Workshop Evaluation Form also receive a CME/CNE/CCB certificate, supported by documentation of contact hours.
