Continuing Education Credit:

Thru the University of Pittsburgh’s Continuing Education Department:

The University of Pittsburgh School of Medicine is accredited by the Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education to provide continuing medical education for physicians.

The University of Pittsburgh School of Medicine designates this live activity for a maximum of 10.75 AMA PRA Category 1 Credit(s)™. Physicians should claim only the credit commensurate with the extent of their participation in the activity.

Other health care professionals are awarded 1.0 continuing education units (CEU’s) which are equal to 10.7 contact hours.

Physical Therapy Professionals:

We have received approval through FSBPT's ProCert Program to offer a maximum of 8.0 CCU* (continuing competency units) for the 28 states that accept ProCert accredited hours towards license renewals. Click here for more details on the ProCert Program and a list of the 28 states.

*Continuing Education Units (CEU), traditional classroom-based format, was once the only activity available to help PT licensees maintain their professional competence. It is now only one of a growing number of activities, such as specialty exams, residencies, and membership in a professional organization that many PT Boards now recognize under the title of continuing competence units (CCU).

Participation by all individuals is encouraged. Advance notification of any special needs will help us provide better service. Please notify us of your needs at least two weeks in advance of the program by calling 001-(412) 624 5293.
