EARN CATEGORY 2 CREDIT FOR READING JLGH

American Medical Association Category 2 activities consist of self-directed learning or courses that have not been through a formal approval process. According to the Pennsylvania State Board of Medicine, this includes “learning experiences that have improved the care [physicians] provide their patients.” Reading authoritative medical literature — like JLGH — is one such activity.

  • More information and the Pennsylvania Board of Medicine CME Reporting Form are available here.
  • Physicians can also log credit through their eeds account online.
