This really isn't that bad. I've gotten a few hundred emails, and to be honest, there seems to be a misconception that this is a "research" requirement. Which it is not....in fact, that is rather insulting...These PI-CME projects are coming to EVERYONE. (Don't know about nurses or NPs) but for pretty much all physicians (including those who are not BC) and PAs..this is going to be a requirement.
I wouldn't get too upset about this. It's all just process improvement. Could have been worse....they could have mandated we do this AND stay on a 6 year testing cycle.
