The CRICO/RMF of the Harvard Medical Institutions process credits for physicians who have completed courses at the Center for Medical Simulation. This takes approximately three months. You will receive a certificate in the mail when your credits have been processed.
Nurses, Midwives, and other healthcare providers will receive a "Certificate of Attendance" with credit hours that may be converted to CEs or CEUs. Massachusetts-licensed nurses can find information about converting CME to CEU at this Mass.gov site. Nurses from other states should check with their respective State Board or credentialing body for guidance on this process.
