Association of Neonatologists Georgia was the first who started the Continues Medical Education (CME) projects in Georgia.

All the National CME programs have been accredited at Tbilisi State Medical University and MoH. Courses grant CME credit points to participants – needed to collect for their medical license prolongation.
-As per new order of MoH dated 19/07/2018, previously collected credit points will NOT count in SUM needed for prolongation of doctor’s license and only Continues Medical Educational programs accredited at MoH after above order, will grant official, valuable for license credit points;
-Above order also has regulated more strict criteria's to CME point providers as well as established monitoring over doctors’ presence.
-We have a situation, where demand on official CME programs dramaticallly increased in Georgian medical society, while valuable CME credit point provider organizations became less since the strict criteria's.
