    In politics it is rare for politicians running for the same off office to agree on anything. But this week a unique agreement arose between the three gubernatorial candidates in Massachusetts.

    As the negative consequences surfaced in Massachusetts on the Pharmaceutical and Medical Device Manufactures Code of Conduct i.e. “the gift ban” and built up over time, individuals in the commonwealth running for governor realized the significant  is approval of the gift ban and as a result, the State House News Service reported yesterday that whoever the next governor is, the gift ban may be gone.

    NAMEC BOARD OF DIRECTORS: Call for Nominations coming soon!

    NAMEC recognizes that an active Board of Directors is vital to the success of our organization.

    NC-CME announces Extension of Certification program

    The National Commission for Certification of CME Professionals (NC-CME) is pleased to announce an Extension of Certification (EOC) program offered to Certified CME Professionals (CCMEPs) when their current certificates expire. 

    The EOC will serve to extend the initial 3-year certification to 5 years for candidates who fulfill the EOC eligibility requirements. Active CCMEPs may submit their EOC applications 3-6 months before the expiration date noted on their certificates. For example, the first Class of June 2008 will submit EOC applications between January 1 and March 31, 2011.Qualified candidates will receive updated certificates and will continue to be included in the National
    Registry of Certified CME Professionals, accessible online at

    Each candidate’s EOC eligibility worksheet will be reviewed for evidence of his/her own personal continuing professional development that has taken place since the initial certification date. The EOC point requirement will be 12 points, compared with 15 points required for initial certification; the EOC registration fee will be $275, compared with the initial fee of $450.  Attendance at conferences and webinars, memberships in CME organizations, and volunteer work in the CME community are among the activities that may qualify toward the 12-point requirement. 

    Candidates for the 2-year extension will not be required to sit for an exam. When the extension period expires candidates for recertification will need to pass the exam that is being given at that time, which ensures that CCMEPs will be tested every 5 years to demonstrate that they have kept up-to-date with current CME rules and regulations. 

    Notices will be sent to each CCMEP 6 months before his/her certification expires. CCMEPs who allow their certification to expire, then wish to be reinstated, will be  required to pass the currently available 3-hour certification exam and will need to document 15 points of education/experience in the CME field within the past 3 years.
