DPM Continuing Education Contact Hours

California Podiatric Medical Association is approved by the Council on Podiatric Medical Education as a provider of continuing education in podiatric medicine. California Podiatric Medical Association has approved this activity for a maximum of 26.58 Continuing Education Contact Hours (CECH).


Doctors of Podiatric Medicine will be able to attain a maximum of 11.25 Radiology, including 2 Fluoroscopy
Continuing Education Contact Hours
(CECH) to meet California Radiology Continuing Education requirements. Note: Continuing education credits are included in the Doctors’ General Sessions and workshops and may vary dependent upon which lectures and workshops are attended.

In accordance with the Council on Podiatric Medical Education (CPME), The Western is required to monitor
educational session attendance for continuing education (CE) verification. Badges will be barcoded with your
registration information and must be scanned twice daily at designated times for credit. Attendees will be sent transcripts reflecting only the number of Continuing Education Contact Hours earned by scanning for general sessions and/or attending workshops.

To receive the maximum number of CECH, DPMs must have their badges scanned at each of the posted scanning times. Attendees who are registered for workshops or courses outside of general sessions or who miss scanning times will have their total CECH adjusted accordingly.

Continuing education verification transcripts will be sent to the email provided at registration by August 31, 2017. If you did not provide an email address with your registration, please send it to jsteed@calpma.org. Each registrant is responsible for reporting attendance to all appropriate licensing boards
and agencies requiring continuing education.

The Western cannot supply CECH transcripts prior to July as it takes time to process verification reports. If attending from a state which requires proof of attendance prior to July 1, please make a note of this.

Retain the transcript sent to you. Electronic copies may be obtained by emailing a request to jsteed@calpma.org. A ten dollar ($10) fee will be charged for replacement hard copies faxed or mailed.
