CME Category 2
The CAP designates Surveys for up to 15 credit hours per Survey per year (except for those listed in Category 1) in Category 2 of the Physician's Recognition Award (PRA) of the American Medical Association (AMA). Each physician should claim only those hours of credit he/she actually spends in the educational activity.

The physician participant is responsible for totaling and reporting Category 2 credit hours, which are given for nonsupervised individual medical education. Ninety hours of Category 2 credit are accepted by the AMA toward the 150 credit hours required in a consecutive three-year period in order to qualify for the PRA.

The CAP designates this activity for up to 15 credit hours in Category A3 of the Pathology Continuing Medical Education Award.

Cytotechnologists
PAPC/PAPM and NGC provide continuing education opportunities for cytotechnologists. Cytotechnologists will earn continuing education credits (CECC) through the American Society of Cytopathology (ASC) and the International Academy of Cytology (IAC). PAP and NGC are also approved for continuing education credit in the states of Florida and California.
