Self-Study Activities for CMPP™s

 What is a Self-Study Activity?

The ISMPP Certification Program continues to offer expanded opportunities for CMPPs to earn continuing education (CE) credits.  A wide, diverse array of online self-study (or self-paced) activities are available for CE credit.  These on-demand activities are characterized by the student and instructor separated by time and location, or where the student engages in a learning activity without an instructor. To maintain a balance between live and on-demand learning, a maximum of 7 self-study CE credits per year may be earned for recertification.

Examples of self-study activities include:

  • Pre-recorded audio/video programs
  • Recorded webcasts
  • Self-paced online courses
  • Published articles

How Do I Earn Credit for a Self-Study Activity?

You may earn credit for participating in self-study educational activities that have been reviewed and approved by the ISMPP Certification Program and listed in the Approved CMPP™ Activities list.  The number of credit hours and associated domain (credit category) for each self-study  activity are predetermined by the ISMPP Certification Program.

Two categories of self-study activities are available for CMPPs: 1) those under the banner “Self-Study Activities” on the list of Approved CMPP Activities and 2) those associated with The Publication Plan (under “The Publication Plan” banner) on the list of Approved CMPP Activities.

To earn credit for a self-study activity, simply click on the activity link on the list of Approved CMPP™ Activities and read or view the activity.  Next, complete the survey relating to the activity to receive your authorization code, which must be placed in your Credit Tracker.  Without the authorization code, you will not receive credit for the activity.

New self-study activities are added regularly to capture key developments in the field of medical publications.
