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.
PracticalCME offers multiple live CME courses, which combine online content with hands-on sessions to gain practical experience.
Our award-winning courses with hands-on sessions focus on aesthetics and wellness and include the following:
- Botox with dermal filler training
- Cosmetic PRP (Platelet-Rich Plasma) training
- PDO thread training
- Sclerotherapy training
No, we don’t! Our live courses with CME credits are open to multiple healthcare providers.
PracticalCME’s courses on Botox with dermal filler, cosmetic PRP, and sclerotherapy are open to registered nurses, physicians, and mid-levels. However, only physicians and mid-levels can attend our PDO thread hands-on sessions.
In addition, dentists and naturopaths may be eligible for our hands-on Botox/dermal filler or PRP training as long as their states’ legal scope of practice allows them to take these courses.
All attendees should understand that no training course, not even PracticalCME’s program, can alter their licensure’s legal scope of practice.
If you’re interested in our live CME courses for physicians, primary care clinicians, and other health professionals, please check the rules and regulations set by your state or country.
Other medical professionals may be eligible for our virtual option. If you want more information about it, contact us!

Have you wondered how to obtain CME credits by attending live courses? It’s easier than you think!
You can earn CME credits by watching our online content or attending our live events and completing the requirements to prove you participated in both sessions, which often include self-assessments or post-tests.
The number of CME credits you can earn depends on the option you choose. If you attend the live course and pass the post-test, you’ll get the first of two printable certificates and between four and nine CME credits.
After that, you have the chance to attend the hands-on date, where you can receive a comprehensive review of the technique you learned by watching the online material in a one-on-one supervised setting. If you complete this session and get the second certificate, you’ll also earn between four and six CME credits.
Yes, we do! As mentioned, PracticalCME offers CME courses to primary care clinicians, who are professionals trained in family medicine, pediatrics, and internal medicine.
Besides family physicians, this group includes nurse practitioners and physician assistants. However, this depends on the course, as each CME program has different eligibility requirements.
If you attend our CME courses’ live sessions for your hands-on practice, you’ll be able to enjoy a comprehensive private class limited to only six or fewer participants.
At PracticalCME, we understand that each person learns slightly differently and needs to get the instructor’s full attention to make the most out of the live session and gain enough practical experience. That’s one of the reasons why our limited-seat courses are so effective and popular.
If you want to know more about our upcoming live activities, you can find all the information you need on our website or contact us!
As mentioned, our hands-on sessions are limited to six attendees. In addition, our instructors are often busy with their practices, so we don’t teach full-time. Therefore, we highly encourage people interested in our live courses to reserve their seats on the upcoming date as soon as possible.
At PracticalCME, we’ve worked for over 14 years to become an industry leader, and we offer healthcare professionals the live CME courses they need to expand their knowledge, refine their skills, and jump-start their careers.
Unlike other CME course providers, we offer a dual certification that combines FAST TRACK online training with a hands-on session, allowing learners to review online content at their own pace before testing their knowledge in a real-life setting.
In addition, we provide unlimited updates for two years at no additional cost for all our courses. You’ll be able to keep up to date with the latest industry information to offer high-quality care to your patients.
Finally, PracticalCME’s team of instructors is made up of expert faculty. Every MD who teaches our courses has at least 10 years of experience in the field.
To sum up, we offer extensive support before and after training, comprehensive content taught by all-MD faculty, evidence-based courses, private classes, and much more!
Yes, they can. Our courses are open to licensed physicians, including those specializing in emergency medicine.
