The Foot and Ankle Quarterly Continuing Medical Education (CME) program is intended to be a 24 Continuing Education Contact Hours (CECH)-per-year program.* Volume 30, Issues 1-3 will each have 24 Board Examination-quality, multiple-choice questions. (Issue 4 is a non-CME issue.) Subscribers will receive a maximum of eight continuing education contact hours per issue* for each correctly completed and submitted CME Answer Form. Visit www.datatrace.com/continuing-education-courses/approvalcodes/faq/ to determine how many contact hours your state’s board accepts. All applicants for contact hours must be Foot and Ankle Quarterly subscribers or a multi-user of a current subscriber.
Participants receiving a passing score (70% correct or greater) will have the opportunity at the end of the Program to print a Certificate of Completion which can then be sent by you directly to your State Board. Participants must pass the Quiz in order to receive credit, but may attempt one retake of any issue for which they did not initially receive credit. The fee for a retake is $15.00 per test.
