Continuing Medical Education

(CME)

This program is provided through an agreement between the AMA and Alberta Health

The 2021/22 CME program will be administered by Alberta Health. This will be for CME expenses incurred between April 1, 2021 and March 31, 2022. The benefit will be $2,100 per physician and the claiming details for that program are available on the Alberta Health website. The web page outlines eligibility, reimbursement details and includes the application form. Alberta Health has also issued a Medical Bulletin with more details on the 2021/22 CME program.

The AMA will assume administration of the CME program effective April 1, 2022. The 2022/23 benefit will be $2,200 per physician and will be available for expenses incurred April 1, 2022 to March 31, 2023. Program details will be made available in the coming weeks – as soon as the grant agreement with Alberta Health is finalized.

A reminder that to receive the one-time payment and any of the benefit programs, physicians will need to be full members of the AMA or have paid an administration fee equal to full membership. Renew your membership as soon as possible to ensure there are no payment delays. Note that 2021/22 CME program will not have this requirement.

If you have CME-related assistance, please email CME@albertadoctors.org or call 780.482.0324, toll free 1.866.714.5724 (ext.5324).

The AMA advances patient-centered, quality care by advocating for and supporting physician leadership and wellness.
