Information about Recertification
The American Board of Medical Physics recognizes the importance of continuing professional development and awards certification on a time limited basis. Continuing Education (CE or CME) is defined as “educational activities that serve to maintain, develop or increase the knowledge, skills and professional performance and relationships that a professional uses to provide services for patients, the public, or the profession.” When you complete a Category 1 CE activity you should make sure your attendance has been logged with CAMPEP (preferable), or obtain a certificate of completion from the activity’s sponsor, if the meeting has not been registered with CAMPEP.
Effective January 1, 2014, recertification by the ABMP requires at least 125 continuing education credits (CEC’s) every five years. This requirement is consistent with requirements of other certifying bodies. The 125 CE credits may be met by a combination of Category 1 continuing education credits and Category 2 continuing education credits, although the application for recertification must contain at least 65 Category 1 credits, and can contain a maximum of 60 Category 2 credits.
TERM: The initial ABMP certification will be for 5 years and must be renewed every 5 years thereafter in order to maintain certification. If your recertification application is not received with appropriate CEC’s and supporting documents, you will be removed from the list of duly certified diplomates.
