Each attending physician who involves residents in the care of patients and who renders a bill for these services is mandated to attend a training session covering the guidelines for teaching physicians at least every two years.
Unless they have documented attendance at such a session within the past two years, attending physicians must attend this session and sign the forms that they have done so.
After attending this activity, participants will be able to:
- Understand the Medicare rules for supervision of residents
- Review the documentation requirements supporting teaching and presence
- Ensure compliance with the teaching physician regulations
Albert Einstein College of Medicine designates this educational activity for a maximum of 1 credit towards the AMA Physician’s Recognition Award. Each physician should claim only those credits that he/she actually spent in the educational activity.
Albert Einstein College of Medicine is accredited by the Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education to provide continuing medical education for physicians.
