The ACR has long been committed to meeting the lifelong professional development needs of radiologists and other radiology professionals. We also recognize our position of influence among our colleagues across other aspects of medicine.
That’s why we were so excited when the American Medical Association (AMA) approached us earlier this year with an invitation to become the first medical specialty society content partner for their new online education portal, the AMA Ed Hub™. Launched this week, AMA Ed Hub provides a streamlined way to find, earn, track and report continuing medical education (CME) and other education.
As part of this partnership, ACR is proud to offer a selected portion of its many educational opportunities to physicians of all specialties. Topics addressed in this sampling of our resources include physician leadership, data science, research and clinical practice management.
In addition to the ACR content, the AMA Ed Hub features activities on clinical and interdisciplinary topics from a variety of trusted sources, including the CME activities from the Journal of the American Medical Association (JAMA) Network’s JN Learning and AMA STEPs Forward. The AMA is also working toward collaborating with other organizations to expand the library of educational opportunities available through the AMA Ed Hub.
At launch, AMA Ed Hub automatically reports education credits earned through the platform directly to select medical licensing boards. Physicians who are board certified with the American Board of Internal Medicine, the American Board of Pediatrics or licensed in Tennessee or North Carolina will be the first to experience automatic credit reporting through the platform. The AMA plans to expand these capabilities to additional specialty and state boards.
We encourage ACR members and all physicians to take advantage of this new educational platform that the AMA hopes will make the process of obtaining credits for continued learning as effective and as streamlined as possible.
