Great educational value. The value to me is making me aware of topics outside of my day-to-day practice. The activity of critically reading articles broadens my perspective of patient care.

How The Program Works

  • When your Review CME exam activity package arrives in the mail, use the article citations provided or access the citations page at NEJM.org to find the articles on which exam questions are based. (Online access to most articles requires a personal or institutional subscription.)
  • Select the single best answer for each question and return your answer sheet in the envelope provided no later than the eight-week submission deadline.
  • If you are participating in ABIMs Maintenance of Certification (MOC) program, and you wish the Massachusetts Medical Society to transmit your MOC points to ABIM, complete the ABIM MOC form indicating your ABIM ID C a six-digit number, and partial date of birth (month/day).
  • Expect to receive your score, performance critique, explanatory answer booklet, and follow-up educational resources within a month.
  • With an exam score of 70% or better, you will successfully complete the activity and receive a certificate from the Massachusetts Medical Society for 50 AMA PRA Category 1 Credits™ or AAFP Prescribed credits. Show patients and colleagues that you are current on the important advances in medicine. If needed, you will have one opportunity to improve your score.
  • Complete and return your Review CME Program evaluation to provide much valued feedback about the programs quality and effectiveness.
