Chicago Dermatological Society CME

The CDS offers its members Continuing Medical Education (CME) credit through joint sponsorship with organizations accredited through the ACCME.  Stringent standards and procedures are needed to secure Category 1 accreditation.  Among these are a needs analysis, identification of gaps in knowledge to be addressed by the educational activity and learning objectives for each conference.

Credits earned through CDS Conferences are documented in a link sent by the Postgraduate Institute for Medicine (PIM).  Evaluations are emailed from CDS directly after each monthly Conference.
