|The Canadian Medical Association is committed to providing its members with access to high quality, accredited online continuing medical education. The courses focus on current education gaps and neglected topics that are of importance to physicians today, while addressing physician concerns about the accessibility of accredited courses. All of the CMA courses are accredited by both the College of Family Physicians of Canada and the Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons of Canada. The credits that you earn from completing any of the CMA courses can now be automatically transferred to both colleges. Link to www.cma.ca/cme
