To make sure you are accredited, there is going to be a need to go out and complete your CME credits. Anyone that is looking to get into medicine will require these credits under their record beforehand. There are different programs you can do this with, but most of them have been vetted beforehand. This will ensure you know which one is good for you and which one is not going to give you the credits in a linear fashion.
it is one thing to go out and find these CME credits and another to know the cost.
Let’s take a look at the costs.
150 Hours Needed
Before looking at the costs, you should know how many hours you are going to need as the expenses are set on a “per hour” basis by the state. You have to think about these things as you are budgeting. Each program is going to record its price on that level and give you a final amount.
In the end, every student that is going through the process will have to pay for 150 hours worth of credits to meet the requirements in place.
For a program to be accredited, they have to showcase the 150 hours worth of credits needed.
$15 Per Hour
The price set right now by programs is around $15 per hour. This is going to vary based on the program and where you are going, but this is the general amount most programs will list out for you. If you were to take their credits and divide it by the hour you are going to be spending, this is how much you will end up getting.
So, if you are to run the calculations, it would be 150 x 15. This would come out to be $2250 for the CME credits.
You also have to realize there are textbooks that you are going to be paying for and this will vary based on the professor and what they require. You have to get general books, but there are additional texts that will come up.
These are the costs of CME credits that are a must for those who are looking to get their lice nse and start in medicine.
You will have things in place, but you have to go through this first so you are on the right path and get the license you have been searching for.
