Learning from Teaching

The American Medical Association has recently authorized academic CME providers to certify a new category of American Medical Association (AMA) Physician’s Recognition Award (PRA) Category 1 Credit(s)™.  “Learning from Teaching” is a descriptive label for this type of CME activity used for reporting to Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education (ACCME).  The purpose of this new activity type is to recognize activities which were historically reported as AMA PRA Category 2 Credit.

Learning from Teaching credit may be claimed for academic endeavors in both undergraduate medical education (UME) and graduate medical education (GME), , or for learning gained in the experience of being a CME speaker.

The Indiana University School of Medicine Division of Continuing Medical Education has established the attached policy for tracking self-directed and individualized Learning from Teaching activities.  The form provided will document the associated ACCME Criteria for Accreditation and associated learning outcomes.

Physician faculty may be awarded credit at a 2-to-1 ratio to teaching/learning time.  For example, faculty may be awarded 2.00 credits for 1 hour of learning.  Credits should be rounded to the nearest one-quarter credit. Please note that there is a 20.00 credit annual maximum (for 10 hours of learning) for this activity per academic year.
