A lead author may claim AMA PRA Category 1 Credit™ directly from the AMA for learning that occurs as a result of publishing articles. Credit can be awarded only for articles published within the last six years. The AMA will award 10 credits per article. If multiple articles are submitted, you will receive one certificate indicating the date range for the past six years in which you are claiming credit for published articles, with the start date being the publication date of the earliest article submitted, and the end date being the publication date of the most recent article submitted. If submitting articles that took place more than three years ago you will receive a separate certificate for these activities.
Applicants should keep a copy of the application and supporting documentation submitted. Credit will not be given for editing activities or contributions to books. Supporting documentation requirements include a reprint or copy of each article’s first page with a listing of authors and the publication date(s).
