Continuing Education Credit
AMGA Education Mission Statement
AMGA’s Continuing Education Program delivers high-quality learning activities to respond to the educational needs of its member medical groups. AMGA strives to educate medical group leaders, physicians, and other key players of the care team on valid and independent content that is relevant to their practice and that contributes to improvements to their strategies, skills, and/or performance as healthcare teams.
AMGA activities enable participants to share information and innovations to remain current and continually improve patient care by advancing medical groups and integrated systems of care to deliver the next level of high-performance health. Participants of AMGA activities are offered the opportunity to claim earned Continuing Education credits to complete their requirements in CME, CPE, and ACHE Qualified Education. Credit particulars can be found within the details of each session.
