CME Online (Aug 2022) - 40th blast email

Dear Colleagues,

I am sending you the e-blast notification of the Category A CME activities of the month of August.

If the 2020 – 2022 cycle is not your first CME cycle, you are kindly reminded that you should fulfil the CME requirement before 31 December 2022. If you have less than 60 CME points by the end of this year, the non-compliance to CME/CPD requirement will not be remediable.

If the 2020 – 2022 cycle is your first CME cycle, you are required to obtain CME points pro-rata to a three-year cycle according to your CME start date. Please note the minimum requirement of individual CME category is waived if the first cycle is shorter than 3 years, so you can obtain CME points from ANY category.

When you utilize ZOOM or other teleconference software, please remember to sign in with your full name and your College Fellowship Number so that the organizer can capture your attendance. For CME activities that last more than one hour, you are required to capture your attendance twice to be granted the full amount of CME points, or else only one CME point will be registered. You may also be required to fulfil the requirements (e.g. completing a Google Form, a survey, or answering a number of post-meeting questions) of the organizers before the CME points can be registered to your CME profile.
