Proration of CME points may be applicable for doctors who:
a) Are newly registered
b) Have a change of appointment
Newly Registered Doctors
Doctors who are newly registered at any point of time will have their CME point requirements pro-rated for the first CME qualifying period. The number of CME points that a doctor is required to fulfil after pro-ration will depend on the date of issue of his/her practising certificate (PC).
For example, newly-registered doctors who are issued with 2-year PCs in May 2011 will only be required to fulfil 42 CME points (20/24 months x 50 points) before they can renew their 2-year PCs which will expire in May 2013. The months of January 2011 to April 2011 will not be considered. Of these 42 CME points, 8 points shall be core points (20% of 42 points) unless they are exempted from the core point requirements.
