Medscape offers three types of credit through CME/CE activities. We offer credit to physicians (AMA/PRA Category 1), registered nurses (ANCC contact hours), and pharmacists (ACPE contact hours).
If you do not fall into one of these categories, you will receive a letter of completion (LOC) that identifies the hours of instruction and credit type for which the activity was designated.
Update: Nurses and PAs will be able to submit some of their LOC certificates for credit. As long as the activity offers CME AMA PRA Category 1 credit.
Medscape cannot guarantee that these credits will be accepted by your state board. Please contact your professional licensing board before participating in an activity to determine whether they will accept these credits.
