Over 305,000 children are served annually in North and South Carolina by over 1,300 trained medical providers in over 400 participating clinics and hospitals.
We’re thrilled to announce our Continuing Medical Education Program that offers additional professional development opportunities to our network of ROR medical providers, learners and supporters CME for some courses in Pathwight, our online learning community.
This Enduring Material activity, Reach Out and Read Online Modules, has been reviewed and is acceptable for credit by the American Academy of Family Physicians. Term of approval begins 05/01/2019. Term of approval is for one year from this date. Physicians should claim only the credit commensurate with the extent of their participation in the activity.
AAFP Prescribed credit is accepted by the American Medical Association as equivalent to AMA PRA Category 1 credit(s)™ toward the AMA Physician’s Recognition Award. When applying for the AMA PRA, Prescribed credit earned must be reported as Prescribed, not as Category 1.
Each Reach Out and Read Carolinas online module will vary in credits awarded based on the length of the module. Maximum credits for each module will be indicated at the beginning of the course and a certificate of completion will be provided to participants at the end of each module.
