Neurology CME Questions

February 2009

By answering the following questions, you can earn 2 category 1 CME credits.  These questions will be based on the discussion found on Neurolist during the month of March 2001.  In order to receive the credits you must score at least a 70% on this test and submit payment to the Medical College of Georgia for $ 25.00 for the two credits.  If you do not score high enough to obtain the credits then you will not be charged.  After submission of the questions you will be taken to a secure web site where you can enter your credit card information.  If you prefer, you may also send this information by fax or phone; the information needed to do this will appear on the secure web site.   You may take this test more than once if you do not receive a satisfactory score.  You must be a member of Neurolist to receive CME credit; membership in Neurolist is free.

The goal of Neurolist is to meet the learning needs of a worldwide group of neurologists. The most important need is to have a group of colleagues with a diverse experience with whom problem cases in neurology can be discussed with. In addition we will discuss new studies and findings of interest to neurologists. Finally we will discuss other issues of interest to neurologists. All areas of neurology will be discussed during the course of the year.
