CME stands for Continuing Medical Education and refers to the ongoing training healthcare professionals need throughout their careers.

Continuing education helps health professionals expand their knowledge over the years to improve their performance and provide high-quality care.

According to the American Medical Association (AMA), healthcare providers who have earned CME credits can demonstrate that they have participated in educational activities. That’s an important requirement for many state medical boards, hospital medical staffs, medical specialty societies, specialty boards, insurance groups, and others.
