To assist in meeting the new certification and recertification requirements for PAs, SDPA offers Self Assessment (SA) - CME through our dynamic SDPA Conference CME offerings. We also offered SA opportunities through our Distance Learning Initiative, however that program has been retired. A new program, the Diplomate Fellowship, is currently being developed. Membership can stay up to date on that process through our newsletters and email notification.
On August 11, 2016 the NCCPA announced that Self-Assessment (SA) and Performance Improvement (PI) CME will no longer be a requirement for those in the 10-year recertification cycle, though they will remain viable options for CME. The SDPA Conference CME and Distance CME team have worked hard to develop excellent SA and PI CME opportunities and we will still offer them as long as our members find value in that benefit. The NCCPA continues to recognize the value of these very interactive types of CME and will weight PI and SA CME more heavily, which makes the value per hour of CME even better for these options. This translates to double credits for the first 20 PI-CME hours and 1.5 credits for every hour SA CME earned.
