Thailand: CME Required for Relicensure
Wentz/Miller & Associates Global CME Newsletter

More than 26,000 physicians in the Kingdom of thailand must collect no less than 100 CME credits every 5 years to maintain the right to practice. The system is administered by the Center for CME (CCME), a semi-independent organization supervised by the Medical Council of Thailand.

Live CME is delivered by certified principal institutes. In these, one credit equals one hour. It is possible for Thai doctors to claim credits for meetings attended abroad, on an individual basis. Credit can also be obtained for self-learning, patient-based learning in hospital, and continuing professiona development activities. Award of credits varies for these.

Each certified principal institute must record credits and upload these to the CCME server. A good idea for all countries!
