ACCME CME - AMA PRA Category 1 CreditTM(s)

With accreditation by the Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education (ACCME), Jaseng Hospital of Korean Medicine is able to certify its educational programs for American Medical Association Physician Recognition Award (AMA PRA) Category 1 credits™. AMA PRA is recognized worldwide as the gold standard for lifelong medical learning. U.S. physicians use CME credit to demonstrate that they have participated in educational activities and obtained CME credit to document that they have met the requirements of state medical boards, medical specialty societies, specialty boards, hospital medical staff, the Joint Commission, and insurance companies.

In response, the AMA and ACCME collaborated to simplify CME activities for AMA PRA Category 1 Credit™ by sharing its values and implementing simplification encouraging innovation and flexibility in CME to ensure accredited activities meet education standards and are independent of conflicting interests.

Jaseng Hospital of Korean Medicine was accredited as an AACME provider in 2021. Jaseng Medical Academy is the first and only ACCME-accredited medical institution in Asia providing evidence-based medical education and training for integrative Korean medicine approaches to musculoskeletal disorders.
