Continuing Medical Education Fund

The Continuing Medical Education Fund assists physicians with the costs associated with continuing medical education courses and materials. Physicians may make one or more applications during a calendar year (January 1 to December 31) or may allow the funds to carry over for use in the following year. (i.e. a physician can "bank" one year's entitlement and claim for two years worth of entitlement in the subsequent year. The maximum carry-over period is one year.) Applications must be received by January 15 following the year in which the entitlement is due to expire.
