A unique feature of AuntMinnieCME is the ability to take courses before
paying. You may try a practice course or preview actual CME course material via
the button. Learning is free -- you only pay if you wish to receive a certificate for
Throughout AuntMinnieCME, you will see the "take courses" button. Click it to go to the course selection page.
Once you select a course, be sure to visit every page within the course. Visit the red links to
read ancillary information contained in the course. The navigation bar at the
top and bottom of each page contains links to all of the pages within the course.
Seek the correct answer for ALL interactive questions. Questions that have not yet been answered correctly will display their possible answers with red links. Once you have answered a question correctly, those links will no longer be red. Remember that seeking the correct answer for all questions is necessary, including (as a means of reinforcement) all True/False questions that you answer incorrectly the first time.
When you have completed a course, the status message will contain a link to a
course evaluation form. You must complete this form so that we can note in your
record that you have taken this course.
When you have completed courses with a total value of at least 60 minutes, and
you wish to receive a certificate for CME credit, you must pay for the credit hour(s) and
request the certificate(s). Please click the "request certificate" link or visit
the Manage Account page and select the option to "Place CME courses that you have taken on a certificate."
Select the courses you would like to have certified by clicking the corresponding
checkbox in the "Place on Certificate" column, then follow the instructions to proceed
to the Confirmation screen. If you already have enough pre-paid minutes available
to purchase the certificates, click "confirm" and you may proceed to view/print your
certificate online. If you have not yet purchased credits, you will be given the
opportunity to do so. Continue to Step 3.
You will need to purchase CME credits if you wish to request a certificate for
courses you completed. AuntMinnie uses a secure credit card transaction for CME
Our CME credits are sold in individual credit hours. The cost is $10 per Category I CME credit hour, and these credit hours do not expire.
After purchasing credits, you will be returned to the Confirmation screen to
complete the transaction. You may now view and print your certificate, Step 4.
We offer our members the ability to print, view and/or reprint their own certificates. Simply click the "Print Certificate" button to generate a certificate in Adobe PDF format. Once the PDF is generated, click the print button in Adobe Reader to print out your certificate. If you do not have Adobe Reader, you may
download it for free.
Q: The course lists show a "status" for each course. What does that mean?
A: The "status" box displays one of three messages:
Available means that you have never completed the course.
Completed means that you have completed the course, and you have not yet requested a certificate for it.
Awarded means that you have completed the course, and that course has been applied toward a CME certificate that you may print and/or reprint at your convenience.
Q: There's a "status" message displayed at the top of the specific course I'm viewing. What does that mean?
A: When viewing a course, a status message in red will constantly be displayed just under the Top Navigation graphic. It conveys your current CME status for the course. When you have completed the course, this message will let you know that you have done so.
Q: The "status" message in this course doesn't reflect the work I've been doing. What's wrong?
A: If you use the "back" button frequently, the status message will not always automatically refresh. You may occasionally need to click the "Refresh" link displayed at the top of the page.
Q: Can I "skip around" from one course to another before completing a course? Will I still get credit for my work?
A: Yes, within certain constraints. We can keep track of the work you have completed in any course as long as you...
do not close your browser, and
do not sit "idle" on our site for more than twenty minutes.
Remember, the fundamental unit for which we provide CME credit is an entire onecourse. You must fully complete a course, including its point-and-click evaluation form, during your session in order to receive credit for that course.
Q: How long does it take to get my certificate?
A: You may print out your certificate online immediately after you purchase and
request the certificate.
Q: How do I contact you if I have questions?
A: For more information regarding AuntMinnieCME, please e-mail us.
