How to Obtain Speaker Credit


Physicians serving as CME faculty may claim credit for presenting at certified CME activities by applying for the AMA Physician’s Recognition Award on the AMA website (

  • Faculty may be awarded two (2) AMA PRA Category 1 Credits for

          each hour they present at a live activity designated for such credit.

  • Faculty may not claim simultaneous credit as physician learners

         for sessions at which they present; however, they may claim participant

         credit for other sessions they attend as learners at a designated

         live activity.

  • Credit may only be claimed once for repeated presentations.”
          (from The Physician’s Recognition Award and Credit System, AMS, 2006 revision)

Physicians may claim up to 10 credits a year for teaching at live Category 1 activities.
