Continuing Medical Education (CME) at the NIH
The NIH Clinical Center's Office of Clinical Research Training and Medical Education (OCRTME) currently has a contract with the Johns Hopkins School of Medicine to provide CME credit for NIH educational activities that request CME support. The Johns Hopkins School of Medicine, Office of CME, is accredited by the Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education.
Information for NIH Educational Activity Directors
If you are a Director or Coordinator for an NIH Educational Activity, and you would like to offer CME through Johns Hopkins for attendees of your activity, the first step is to complete the "NIH New CME Activity Information Form" below.
Once you have completed the form, please email it to the NIH CME Coordinator, Mr. Daniel McAnally at firstname.lastname@example.org and the Johns Hopkins CME coordinator, Ms. Rhonda Myers at email@example.com.
Hopkins will then review the form and give you a pricing quote. The Office of Clinical Research Training and Medical Education will cover 1/3 of the total cost of your activity and it will be up to your office to cover the remaining cost.
Should you wish to continue with requesting CME credit providership though Johns Hopkins, then the formal application process with begin.
Information for Attendees of NIH CME Activities
If you have attended a NIH CME activity with Johns Hopkins School of Medicine as the CME provider in the past, or are currently attending one, and you would like to know how many CME credits you have accumulated or where to go to print out a copy of your CME Certificate or Transcripts, you can check your account by visiting the website for the Johns Hopkins office of CME at https://hopkinscme.cloud-cme.com/aph.aspx.

For instructions on how to submit your attendance for attending an NIH CME activity, or to check your Hopkins CloudCME account, please review the following steps:
The Johns Hopkins School of Medicine has recently upgraded their CME record keeping to an entirely online system called "CloudCME." This will affect how you receive CME credit for attending a CME-generating activity at NIH and how your CME records are maintained.
To receive credit for attending an NIH CME activity, each attendee must register with the Johns Hopkins School of Medicine Office of CME at https://hopkinscme.cloud-cme.com/aph.aspx. You will provide your name, email address, and cell phone number. If you have attended a NIH CME activity in the past, and requested CME for your attendance, then your email address should be registered with Hopkins CME.
Text your email address to the Hopkins CME phone number, (443) 541-5052, which will pair your mobile phone with your Hopkins CME account that had been created/ used on past CME Self-Report Credit Forms.
Each NIH CME activity is assigned an "activity code." It will be the responsibility of the coordinator of that activity to ensure that you have this code before the activity begins.
After you have attended, you will text the assigned "activity code" to the Hopkins CME phone number at (443) 541-5052 to receive CME credit. Once the text message is sent, your account is updated to reflect the CME credit earned.
IMPORTANT NOTE: The activity code is only valid 15 minutes prior to the start of the activity and until 60 minutes after the activity. Afterwards, the code becomes inactive and you will not be able to submit your attendance for CME credit for that particular activity.
If you have any questions on how to use the new CloudCME record keeping system, please contact the Clinical Center's CME Coordinator, Mr. Daniel McAnally, by email at firstname.lastname@example.org or by phone at 301-496-9425.
