CCMS is pleased to offer a professional CE Broker account to all members for free as a member benefit.
The Florida license renewal system requires physicians to track their CME credits in the Department of Health (DOH) online continuing education tracking system called CE Broker.
DOH will verify each renewing physician’s continuing education credits in CE Broker at the time of renewal (starting with the January 2014 renewal). Physicians will be prompted to report additional CME credits if their continuing education records are incomplete (i.e., less than the hours required of that particular licensee for that particular licensure term). CME providers in Florida have the option to report attendance data for their activities, but are not required to do so.
CCMS will register each participating physician member with a professional account. Normally this would cost $29 a year but there is no charge to CCMS members.
To register: contact the CCMS office with your name and license number: call 239-435-7727 or email us.
As soon as we register your details, you will receive information directly from CE broker to get started. Don’t delay; start reporting your CME credits NOW.
