Claiming Credit for Grand Rounds Attendance

The MUSC Office of CME has developed a process using their registration and CME/CEU credit management system, CME Tracker, that allows faculty, staff, affiliates and external health care providers to look up their CME/CEU credit summary for their requested timeframe. This is not an official CME/CEU credit certificate that can be used for re-credentialing, satisfying MOC/MOL requirements or other uses, but it does allow the individual to keep track of the credits they have earned whenever they need this information.
This is an unofficial transcript of the CME/CEU credit(s) earned for the requested time frame, based on the uploads from barcode scanners and rosters received from MUSC departments and divisions and recorded at the time the request is made. This unofficial transcript is available at no cost for unlimited use. To request an official CME/CEU cumulative credit letter, please contact the Office of CME at or 843-876-1925.
(Note: You will need to have a CME profile in place to view transcripts. Don't have one? Click here to create a CME profile.)
