What if I can’t make the date and time on Saturdays?

You are not obligated to attend the LIVE WEBINAR Saturday morning sessions of Core. Since we record each LIVE WEBINAR it’s available for you to view after the LIVE WEBINAR at a time that’s convenient to you. This is what we refer to as ON DEMAND viewing, and each course will be available to you for the next calendar year. Both the LIVE WEBINAR and ON DEMAND versions of Core come with AMA PRA Category 1 Creditstm, ABIM MOC and AAFP credits. Please note that you will be required to fill out the evaluation with reflective statement for the LIVE WEBINAR and take a quiz and fill out the evaluation with reflective statement with any ON DEMAND viewing. All 2019-2020 and 2020-2021 lectures will be available to you with a full subscription through your eeds.com account for a total of 72 hours of CME.

Can I sign up for single sessions?

Yes, but if you plan to attend more than six of the ten sessions, you should sign up for the full series to save money.

How will I log into the Core LIVE WEBINAR?

Each month you will receive an email with a secret code to log into the webinar.

There are a couple ways for you to log into a Core LIVE WEBINAR:

  • Click on the link that is sent to you via email the week prior to your upcoming webinar and type in the secret code
  • Log into your Core Eeds.com account and find the webinar by typing in your secret code or clicking on the calendar (our event will be clearly marked)
  • Use your Core Eeds.com mobile app to log in from your phone, tablet or other device
Close

Will I be seen on camera or heard via microphone?

Due to the sheer number of participants we automatically disable all cameras and microphones of our participants to avoid any background noise or disruptions. You will only see and hear the presenter(s), and our Course Director, Dr. Beth Manning.

Close

How will I get my questions answered in the live webinar?

The Zoom platform allows you to type in your questions to our faculty. Dr. Manning will review the questions for relevance and priority and ask as many as she can to our faculty during the Q&A part of each session. We also have a chat feature that allows you to communicate with your colleagues during the lectures.

Close

Do I have to do ALL sessions to get credit?

Absolutely not. You can take as many or as few as you’d like. Your credit is awarded for the number of hours you attend.

Close

How do I get credit for a LIVE WEBINAR?

Your credit for attending the LIVE WEBINAR is based upon your logging into the event and filling out the evaluation form at the end. Both are required for your credit to be processed. The evaluation will require a reflective statement of what you learned during the session without this statement we will not be able to process your credit. All ABIM and AAFP credits are reported directly to the organizations for you as well as added to your running transcript.

  • AAFP credit processing is initiated by the participant through a ‘submit my transcript’ button
  • MOC credits are transferred automatically via the eeds.com system
Close

Is there an APP?

Yes! The eeds.com system will come with an app for your mobile device. You can watch the LIVE WEBINAR, fill out your evaluation, view the handouts, all through your phone. Instructions on the eeds app will be coming out soon.

Close

How do I get credit for the ON DEMAND version of Core?

When using the ON DEMAND version of Core you will be required to take and pass a quiz as well as fill out the evaluation with a reflective statement. This validates your engagement in the activity and allows us to grant your AMA PRA Category 1 Creditstm, ABIM MOC and/or AAFP credits.

Close

How do I get my MOC credits?

Your ABIM MOC credits will be uploaded automatically once you fulfill the following requirements:

1) View the LIVE WEBINAR and follow the system prompts for claiming MOC points

2) Fill out the evaluation with a reflective statement of what you learned from the session

Close

How do my AMA PRA Category 1 Credits get reported?

Unfortunately the BORM does not currently have a system in place for CME providers to report your credits directly for you. Therefore you will be responsible for reporting your CME credits to the Board if and when needed. Your credits will all reside in your Eeds.com transcript, available for you to access at any time. Your eeds.com account never expires regardless of your participation in Core.

BONUS: Are you a past Core attendee? All your credits from the past 2 years of Core (both live and online) will be automatically uploaded into your new Eeds account. Hint: we’re trying to put everything in one place for you!

Close

How do I get my AAFP credits?

AAFP credits will be automatically uploaded when you click on the ‘Submit my transcript’ button in your eeds.com account. But you’ll also have access to your running transcript to see your cumulative credits whenever you like.

Close

How do I know how many Risk Management credits I have and how many I still need?

The eeds.com system automatically tracks all of your CME credits, as well as your Risk Management and Pain Management credits for you. You can even set your state specific requirements to your account to know exactly where you stand with your re-licensure requirements.

Close

Can Nurses and Physician Assistant attend?

Absolutely! In fact, nurses represent almost 1/5 of our attendees. We offer AMA PRA Category 1 Creditstm and AAFP credits which work for most of these practitioners – see the reciprocity statements below:

NURSE PRACTITIONERS AND REGISTERED NURSES For the purpose of recertification, the American Academy of Nurse Practitioners Certification Board and American Nurses Credentialing Center accept AMA PRA Category 1 Credit™ issued by organizations accredited by state medical associations (Massachusetts Medical Society). We would also suggest that learners check with their state licensing board to ensure they accept reciprocity with AMA PRA Category 1 Credit™ for re-licensure.

Close

Can Physician Assistants attend?

Absolutely! We welcome all primary care practitioners.

AMERICAN ACADEMY OF PHYSICIANS ASSISTANTS AAPA (American Academy of Physician Assistants) accepts certificates of participation for educational activities certified for AMA PRA Category 1 Credit (s)™ from organizations accredited by ACCME or a recognized state medical society.

THE NATIONAL COMMISSION ON CERTIFICATION OF PHYSICIAN ASSISTANTS (NCCPA) states that AMA PRA Category 1 Credits™ are acceptable for continuing medical education requirements for recertification. We would also suggest that learners check with their state licensing board to ensure they accept reciprocity with AMA PRA Category 1 Credit™ for re-licensure.

How do I get my certificate?

With your eeds.com account you have instant access to your certificates and a running transcript of any Core credits both live and online for the past two years as well as all future credits. Heck, you can even add your credits from those ‘other’ CME events. We’ll do the work to validate them and then officially add them to your transcript. This feature is called SELF REPORTED CREDIT and includes self study courses, journal clubs and presentations. Additionally if using the mobile sign-in, your certificate will be available immediately once you sign-in. No longer will you have to wait weeks for an attendance certificate to come in the mail.

Close

What about my past credits?

Your past two years credits with Core both live and online will be preloaded into your eeds.com account

See answer above – hint: we’re looking to make CME way easier for you!

What about the last two sessions of Core from 2019-2020 that were cancelled due to COVID?

Unfortunately due to faculty COVID illnesses the production of these sessions has been severely delayed. We apologize for this inconvenience. These sessions are due to be finalized and released by September 20th and will be available to you through your new eeds.com account, complete with AAFP and ABIM MOC credits. If you were a 2019-2020 full time member of Core but not signing up for 2020-2021 you can still access these activities thru eeds.com. You will automatically be set up with an eeds.com account for access to these courses as well as your transcript at no additional charge to you. If you choose to sign up for the 2020-2021 series you may still do so and all 2020-2021 LIVE WEBINAR and ON DEMAND courses will then be loaded into your new eeds.com account.

Why do I need a CoreEeds.com account?

However, registering for the full series through the eeds.com payment system will cost you an additional $40 surcharge for creating your account through eeds.com.
