columnist Steve Passin outlines what you need to know about the new AMA Learning from Teaching credits now available for academic CME providers.
Documentation of Credit Claimed
The second page of the sample Learning from Teaching planning document shows how a teacher-learner can document the time he or she spent in each potential applicable segment of a Learning from Teaching activity (as shown in Figure 4).
The credit worksheet shown in Figure 3 reiterates the seven potential categories of learning from this type of activity and asks the learner to indicate the number of minutes (rounded up or down to the nearest quarter-hour) spent in each category (or to check “NA”). Once the CME office receives the planning form, it adds the minutes together. This becomes the number of AMA PRA credits authorized for the learner.
