Maintain Certification

Maintaining your APCA certifications helps you demonstrate up-to-date knowledge and core clinical skills throughout your career.

The pathway of maintaining your certification is comprised of:

  1. Paying the APCA annual renewal fee by December 31 of each year;
  2. Attesting to APCA rules and policies;
  3. Earning your minimum required number of APCA-accepted continuing medical education (CME) credits during your three-year CME period; and
  4. Following applicable Recertification requirements.

Tools and resources:

* Note: If you are an APCA physician who holds ARDMS certification(s), you must follow the Recertification process for your ARDMS certification(s). Recertification requirements have not yet been developed for APCA certifications.
