CME Audit Process

​Important Update for Physicians: ARDMS has introduced a companion certification council for physicians – the Alliance for Physician Certification & Advancement (APCA)!  Please read the post below about what APCA means for you. 

ARDMS conducts an annual audit of a percentage of randomly selected Registrants whose three-year CME period ended in the previous year. Log on to MY ARDMS to view your current three-year CME period and check the status of CMEs you are required to earn by the end of your three-year CME period.

In March 2016 ARDMS began the CME Audit process for Registrants with the three-year CME period of January 1, 2013 to December 31, 2015*.  ARDMS notified the randomly selected Registrants from the 2013-2015 three-year CME period of the CME Audit via email, MY ARDMS and First-Class USPS mail. CME submissions were required to be received in the ARDMS office by April 30, 2016. Those selected for audit will receive written notification from ARDMS of their CME audit results by June, 2016. Results will also be posted on MY ARDMS.

If you were selected for CME Audit and you failed to submit the minimum required number of ARDMS-accepted CMEs by April 30, 2016, your certification(s) will be revoked.

If you have not met the CME requirements, please follow the CME Reinstatement procedures.

*If you earned your first credential in 2012, your three-year CME period began the day you attained the first credential and includes any time that remained in 2012 plus the next three years (January 1, 2013 to December 31, 2015).

Important Update for Physicians: In June 2016 ARDMS introduced the Alliance for Physician Certification & Advancement (APCA), your new exclusive certification destination.  As a physician, you will now seek information, apply for, prepare for, and maintain both your APCA and ARDMS certifications through and the new MY APCA.  From this point forward all the services, reminders and notifications about both ARDMS and APCA certification(s) will now be provided to you by APCA. ​
