Active and Supporting (FP) members must submit at least 150 credits every three calendar years. This is called a re-election cycle. The 150 credits must include at least 75 Prescribed credits and 25 from live learning activities. Some chapters also require “chapter credits.” Check with your chapter for more information.
An exemption of the 25 credits of live activity is allowed for members who submit evidence that they are providing medical care in a missionary/charitable practice setting in an overseas practice for more than a 12-month period.
