CE/CME Credits

What is CITI Program's Continuing Education Awards Program?

Continuing education credits are available with many CITI Program courses. This allows professional learners completing their research ethics and compliance training to apply time investment toward their professional recertification as well.

Types of credits available to credentialed professions (Physicians, Nurses, Psychologists, Pharmacists, and Social Workers) are covered in our Re-Certification Overview. Credits are designated by the Montefiore Center of Continuing Professional Development of the Albert Einstein College of Medicine.

Earning CE certificates is voluntary and the cost is charged to learners. Learners wishing to earn credits indicate their interest during initial enrollment with CITI Program. At any time, they can review and update their selections posted on a “CME/CE” tab located on their private account.

Indicating an interest in credits is not an obligation to purchase. It is however necessary to activate CME information and functionalities on private accounts to allow learners to purchase earned credits.

CE certificates are available for purchase upon successful completion of eligibility requirements covered in CE Disclosures acknowledged by learners at the start of courses. The earned award is paid online, and the CE certificate and receipt of purchase are sent immediately to the email address entered during the enrollment process.
