CM By Worksheet
A Diplomate recertifies by meeting the minimum CM requirements. CM credit must be earned in Category 4 but all the other Categories are optional, providing a flexible, customizable way for the Diplomate to also accrue the required overall CM Points.
Category 1 - Active IH Practice
Category 2 - Technical/Professional Committee Service
Category 3 - Publication of IH Materials
Category 4 - Education
Category 5 - Teaching/Presenting of IH
Category 7 - Other
|Worksheet Form||Worksheet forms are in the Document Library. ABIH will only accept CM worksheets that have been issued by ABIH. Older, out-of-date worksheets are honored but the Diplomate is expected to follow the most current CM rules as posted on this web site or in the CM Program Handbook.|
|Submission Calendar||ABIH® sends several reminder communications during the last 6 months of the CM cycle. During this time period, it is important that the Diplomate's contact information is up-to-date.
Worksheets are submitted at the end of the CM cycle according to the worksheet calendar. The due date depends upon the specific cycle end date assigned to the Diplomate. Diplomates can check their CM cycle end date at My Account.
Note: The expiration date on the Diplomate's paper certificate is not the CM cycle end date.
All worksheets must be submitted and approved no later than 5 months after the CM cycle end date or the Diplomate is subject to decertification.
|Records||Activities claimed on the worksheet must be supported through written impartial evidence. If participation cannot be verified, the Diplomate should not list the item on the worksheet. Examples of satisfactory records are listed in each of the Category sections.
Worksheets are initially submitted without proof-of-participation records.
|Worksheet Reviews||Worksheets are reviewed in the order in which they are received. The review process can take up to 8 weeks.
ABIH reviews each worksheet until the minimums are achieved. ABIH will contact the Diplomate if the minimums are not achieved or if there is anything unclear or missing on the worksheet.
If a Diplomate is in fees arrears, the worksheet will not be processed until the fees are paid.
CM credit earned in excess of the minimum requirements does not earn extra credit nor does it carry over to a future CM cycle.
Being re-certified does not mean that everything listed on the worksheet was acceptable for CM credit. If a Diplomate has questions about what was or was not acceptable (for purposes of future worksheets), the Diplomate should contact ABIH.
