The University of Washington School of Medicine designates this live activity for a maximum of 20 AMA PRA Category 1 Credits™. Physicians should claim only the credit commensurate with the extent of their participation in the activity (each session is 1 credit). 

Grand Rounds is currently only offered via zoom.

CME Credits

As of Jan. 1, 2024, UW faculty and staff are be able to receive CME credit for free. Part of the way we can support these efforts is by beginning text attendance (only for UW faculty and staff).

Using the texting feature to track attendance allows the CME department to keep track of attendance in real-time. This will also allow an accurate count of CME credits an attendee should receive at the end of the year.

Please note: those who have attended any sessions before January 1, 2024 (UW Faculty and Staff) will still need to pay for their credit to receive a CME certificate.

Non-UW individuals

All non-UW individuals who would like to receive a CME certification will continue to pay.
