    In response to Michael Beach [comment #2]

    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. Please note that the new CME program is an annual, use it or lose it, benefit. Expenses incurred prior to April 1, 2021 cannot be claimed.
