Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)

How do I get a report of my CME credits?

Please visit the UR CEL webpage (My Transcript). An instruction guide is also available on the webpage.

I attended a particular conference but it is missing on my transcript. Why?

The IIE Certification Office only tracks and records the conferences and classes that are certified through our office. If you attend a conference that is not certified through our office, then it is up to you as the individual to keep track of the credits earned.

How often are my records updated?

Regularly Scheduled Series (Grand Rounds) are only submitted to the IIE Certification Office by your particular department quarterly.

Conference attendance is updated 4-6 weeks following the event.

My contact information has changed. How can I update it?

Please visit the UR CEL webpage (My Profile). An instruction guide is also available on the webpage.  

The system says I am not a registered participant of this activity OR there is not an active account with this email address. Why?

Make sure you are using the same email address that you used to register for a course, preferably your work email address.

You may need a new password, but you should not need to create a new account.

I am not a physician. Can I take your courses?

 

Yes, anyone can take our courses. However, please note that our courses are accredited by the Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education (ACCME). All participants will receive credit, however not all are eligible to receive the AMA PRA Category 1 Credit™. Learn more about eligibility requirements.

I am a social worker with an LMSW or LCSW certification. Do I need a certificate for events certified for NYS social work credit?

Yes, social workers need a certificate for any event certified for NYS social work continuing education hours. Please visit the UR CEL webpage (My Certificate).

Please remember to print/email/save the certificate for your records. We cannot retrieve old certificates. If lost, all social work CE hours are still recorded on your CE transcript. Please visit the UR CEL webpage (My Transcript). An instruction guide is also available on the webpage.  

How far in advance of an event should I submit the application?

For certification-only activities, please submit the application at least 30 days before the event date.

For IIE fully coordinated conferences, please submit the application 6 months before the event date. Refer to the timeline on the Conference, Meeting and Event Planning webpage.

Regularly Scheduled Series (RSS) activities, such as grand rounds, are certified for one year starting July 1st through June 30th. For new RSS activities, please submit the application at least 30 days before you plan your first session.
