The Academy regularly organises congresses and scientific meetings to enhance the continuing professional development of specialists in Singapore.  AMS also conducts continuing medical education (CME) modules with online CME MCQs hosted on our Learning Management System portal that have been pre-approved for the Singapore Medical Council (SMC) Category 3B CME Programme.

 

Mandatory Medical Ethics CME Modules [MME CME]

The Singapore Medical Council (SMC) announced in a circular on 11 May 2023, that all doctors from 2026 onwards must acquire 5 Mandatory Medical Ethics (MME) CME core points before they can renew their Practising Certificate (PCs). Registered doctors are advised to start accumulating core points for MME CME from 1 January 2024 (for PCs ending on 31 December 2023). Click here for SMC's CME requirements
