CME Programs

MLMIC offers two types of CME programs:

MLMIC is accredited by MSSNY to provide CME for physicians. MLMIC’s risk management CME courses are available throughout the year to its hospital-employed physicians, residents, dentists and mid-level practitioners. Participation in certain programs may be required for those who wish to qualify for the medical malpractice excess insurance program.

MLMIC utilizes conventional formats and new technologies, including an Internet-based format, to provide and deliver its risk management CME programs.

There is no fee for MLMIC policyholders or their employees who wish to participate in these programs.

CME Programs for Premium Credit and Excess Eligibility

Pursuant to New York State Insurance Department Regulation 124, in order to remain eligible for participation in the medical malpractice excess insurance program, hospital affiliated physicians and dentists must complete an excess medical malpractice risk management course every two years. MLMIC has designed its 5% premium credit, VAP, and ECPIP risk management programs so that its insured physicians and dentists can satisfy both requirements by completing these courses.

MLMIC policyholders can register for, begin or continue CME programs online here.

Non-MLMIC insured physicians who are interested in participating in a course should call MLMIC’s Risk Management Department at (800) 275-6564, weekdays 9:00 AM – 4:45 PM.

Modules for CME Credit Only

These modules, which are derived from MLMIC’s previously-released CME programs, address a number of important risk management and patient safety topics.  Physicians completing these modules will earn AMA PRA Category 1 CreditTM. Non-physicians will receive a certificate of completion.  No premium credit is offered for the completion of these modules, nor will they qualify physicians for participation in the excess medical malpractice insurance program.
