Newly board certified or reactivated physicians will have their CME requirement prorated only for the current AOA CME cycle.
When a physician first becomes certified, their CME requirement will be prorated for the current AOA CME cycle only. Prorations will be based on the date of certification, as follows:
|Initial certification proration|
|Entry date||Prorated requirement *
|Jan. 1, 2019 to June 30, 2019||83%|
|July 1, 2019 to Dec. 31, 2019||67%|
|Jan. 1, 2020 to June 30, 2020||50%|
|July 1, 2020 to Dec. 31, 2020||33%|
|Jan. 1, 2021 to June 30, 2021||17%|
|July 1, 2021 to Dec. 31, 2021||No requirement until the 2022-2024 CME cycle|
When a physician reactivates an expired/inactive certification, their CME requirement will be prorated based on the amount of time the certification was inactive, as follows:
|Reactivated certification proration|
|Length of inactivity||Prorated requirement *|
|901–1,096 days||No requirement until the 2022-2024 CME cycle|
* In cases where the prorated amount does not equal a whole number or number ending in 5, the amount will be rounded down to the nearest half point. All prorations apply to each CME requirement (total, category-specific, etc.).
