Continuing Medical Education Requirements for Transition to Continuous Certification

Qualifying Subspecialty CME Credits

Diplomates may use their UCNS subspecialty examination content outline as a guide for acceptable CME topics. Non-subspecilaty CME credits should not be included as part of the CME attestation total.

UCNS reserves the right to request documentation that supports a diplomate's CME attestation. Diplomates must provide the documentation within 30 days of the request.
