Since 2014 there has been a change to how Academy members can earn CME credits for the programs they attend. MCW is our joint sponsor for CME credits and they have implemented a new software platform . The new software is called EthosCE.
With EthosCE, Academy members, Faculty, community physicians and others who attend our CME programs can:
View and print their CME transcripts and certificates at any time
Complete evaluations and quizzes online and/or from their mobile device
Store all their CME credits they have earned from anywhere in one place
Register for upcoming CME activities online
All CME attendance records and CME activities run through EthosCE, thus it is important for anyone who wishes to earn CME credit through MCW to set up a learner profile in EthosCE.
Set up an online account for yourself on the Ethos site.
