EDUCATION IS an ongoing process for physicians, and acquiring state-of-the-art information is vital to the maintenance of excellent patient care. Physicians have numerous means of acquiring and meeting their educational objectives. Beginning with this issue of the Archives of Ophthalmology, there is now another readily available means of acquiring category 1 continuing medical education (CME) credits on a monthly basis.
The main objective of our journal is education. The ARCHIVES aims to inform its readers of progress, new developments, and pertinent research in areas related to the practice of ophthalmology through the monthly publication of original scientific contributions and observations. Beginning with this issue, we are pleased to announce the initiation of the Reader's Choice CME program. Physicians holding current, valid licenses in the United States, Canada, or Mexico, and who read any 3 of the selected articles in the current issue, are now eligible for 1 hour of category 1 credit toward the American Medical Association Physician Recognition Award. This CME service is provided free to readers of the ARCHIVES through the American Medical Association, which is accredited by the Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education to sponsor CME for physicians. While physicians from other countries may also participate in this program, only those from the United States, Canada, or Mexico are eligible for the Physician Recognition Award.
