    For IU Health Nursing Programs: Yes, CEU credit is available for nurses.
    For IUSM Courses: No, CEU credit is not available, however nurses and allied health workers can attend courses and receive certificates of attendance. Then, you will need to contact your governing body to ascertain if they will accept the credits. (The answer is typically yes.)

Credit Summaries

How can I receive my CME credit summary/ transcript?
    Please visit our credit summary/transcript page under the "MyCME" tab and follow the instructions.
    
Why do I need to verify my CME credit summary?
    Verify your credit summary to ensure the credits and data are accurate, especially in reporting for privileges. Turn around time to record credits is usually a few days after the course date. For your personal security, only attendees can access his/her credit summary.

My credit summary is not accurate, why?
    Please note that there are two common reasons for inaccurate credit transcripts:
    First, the data is not yet in the system. Sometimes there is a time delay between you taking a course and it being reflected in our system. For example, live courses will be posted faster than “Grand Round” type activities.
    Second, you are in our system more than once. It is important that you consistently use the same email when registering for courses. This is the unique identifier that we use to tie your course history together. As a result, if you register for a course with your IU address and then turn around and register for a second course with your gmail address you would be treated as two different people. Again, you can change your preferred email at any time by updating your profile. To correct this problem, please call or email our registrar (317-274-0104 or dgraham@iu.edu) and request to add your email address to your profile. Alternatively, the email address associated with your attendance records may be different than the login email address.

Are there more detailed login instructions?
    Yes, our login help document can be found by clicking here.

 

Course Surveys

Do I have to complete a survey in order to receive my CME credits?
    No, you do not have to complete a survey. However, your comments will greatly assist us with the development of future courses.
