Continuing Education Credit

AMGA Education Mission Statement

AMGA’s continuing education program delivers high-quality learning activities to respond to the educational needs of leaders within integrated systems of care. AMGA’s continuing education activities enable its members to share information and innovations in order to remain current and continually improve patient care by advancing the high performance health model as the preferred method of healthcare delivery. Activities within the program address the values of AMGA:  transparency and accountability; integrated, efficient, patient centered care; continuous improvement of patient care systems; physician leadership; team work and total coordinated care. The association accomplishes this goal by offering timely, unparalleled learning activities including an annual conference, regional meetings, leadership council activities and distance learning tools. Medical group leaders who participate in activities offered by AMGA can apply for credits to complete their requirements in CME, CPE, ACMPE, and ACHE, and nurse administrators can earn continuing education credits.

AMGA advocates for the multispecialty group practice model of healthcare delivery and for the patients served by medical groups through innovation and information sharing, benchmarking, and continuous striving to improve patient care. The Board of Directors of AMGA has made a firm commitment to CME by creating and maintaining a committee of the membership, The Education Committee, to provide input and direction to the staff of the association to assist in the development of timely, relevant educational activities which will support the overall mission of the association.

The purpose of AMGA's CME program is to help reform the health care system by responding to the educational needs of physicians in leadership positions. AMGA strives to identify high quality, timely learning activities in areas of leadership development, care process improvement, information technology, practice management, and legislative issues of importance. The Association's educational activities are targeted to physician and non-physician administrators of the nation's multispecialty medical groups.

AMGA offers several continuing medical education activities across the United States to allow the physician leaders an opportunity to attend. AMGA holds one Annual Conference of the association each year as well as several regional meetings and one-and two day seminars.

Specific goals of the CME activities are to encourage and assist in the development of the physician and non-physician leaders of multispecialty group practices so they may remain current and to advance the multispecialty medical group model as the preferred delivery system for patient-centered, affordable, quality medical care in America.

ACCME Credit

The American Medical Group Association is accredited by the Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education to sponsor continuing medical education for physicians. The American Medical Group Association (AMGA) takes responsibility for the content, quality, and scientific integrity of this CME activity. AMGA designates certain educational activities in category 1 credit toward the AMA Physician's Recognition Award. Each physician should claim only those hours of credit he/she actually spent in the activity.

ACMPE Credit

A meeting or activity may qualify for continuing education credit in the American College of Medical Practice Executives (ACMPE). To apply for ACMPE credit, submit the ACMPE generic credit hour form with a copy of the meeting brochure. Copies of those credit hour forms will be available at the time of the program.
