Can I get a copy of the lectures as a handout?
All lecture handouts are available as PDF files. You can print them out and follow along as you listen and view the slide program.

We have also made available downloadable MP3 files of each lecture.

There is a grid just below the objectives for each program within the module that shows the activity link, Slide PDF links, and any other material handouts that may be available for a particular session.
Is this course designed more for those taking the PANCE or the PANRE?
The NCCPA Blueprint is identical whether you are taking the PANCE or the PANRE. This course is a great review no matter which examination you are taking.
I hear that the NCCPA has made some changes to the PANRE. Does this course take that into consideration?
The NCCPA now allows PAs taking the PANRE to continue to select the traditional generalist examination or select 40% of the questions to come from one of three focus areas: primary care, adult medicine, or surgery (also known as the practice-focused PANRE). Please note however, that whichever area of focus you choose, the content blueprint remains unchanged. This review course is designed to cover all topics on the NCCPA Blueprint. Please refer to the NCCPA website for more details on the practice-focused PANRE.
The NCCPA now offers examinations for PAs who are interested in Certificates of Added Qualification (CAQs). Does this course prepare PAs to take those examinations?
This review course is designed as a preparation tool for the PANCE and PANRE only. It is not designed to review the topics on the specialty CAQ examinations.
If I purchase the course from one computer, can I view it on another?
Yes, as long as you use the same myCME login from computer to computer.
I've been able to access the courses before, and now I can't. How come?
The most common reason for this problem is that you have more than one account on myCME and you are not using the login/email you used to purchase the course. Only when logged into this account will you be able to use the course. Please make sure you are using the proper login/email.
Can I register for the course and pay by check?
We accept MasterCard, VISA, American Express, Discover, and PayPal. Personal checks are not accepted.
Once I register and pay for the course, how long will it take before I have access?
Once you have registered and paid, you will be given access immediately. All of the course materials are online.
I hear the speakers reference the exams at the end of each day. May I have access to them?
The online course is set up so that you must take the exam at the end of each module in order to get your CME certificate for CME credit. These examination questions are identical to the examinations given at the live course.
If I am taking the exam and am interrupted before I complete it, will my answers be saved for me to come back to later?
Once you close out of the course without completing the post-test and submitting your answers, your responses will not be saved. In this case, you will need to start the post-test over from the beginning the next time go into the module.
Can I retake the exams again at a later date to see whether I have improved?
The exams are designed to be taken and saved only one time to receive CME credit. You will need to score 70% or better to pass the exam. If you do not pass, you will be shown which answers were right and which were wrong and given another opportunity, until such time as you score 70% or better. Once you pass, you can take the exams again at a later date and receive a new score, but you will not earn more credit and your score will not be saved.
Do any of the CME credits count as pharmacology-specific CME?
The AAPA does not currently designate CME credit as pharmacology specific. Content is solely certified as an AAPA Category 1 credit designation. The AAPA recommends that PAs use their best judgment as to whether the content is pharmacology specific. Keep documentation of the learning objectives for those activities you claim as pharmacology specific in case you need to substantiate the content of such an activity.
Do you offer any discounts?
A special discounted rate is available for the following individuals: attendees of the most recent UMDNJ live course, preceptors of UMDNJ PA students, UMDNJ PA Program lecturers, and graduates of the UMDNJ PA Program.

I am not a PA but have found that these types of courses are very educational and valuable to my practice. May I take the course anyway?
You may certainly register for the course, but you won't receive CME credit since the courses are accredited for only PAs. We welcome your interest and thank you in advance for your participation.
I am having technical difficulties with the course. What should I do?
