To record your attendance and obtain your CME hour(s), please complete the following:
- Create your EthosCE profile and add your phone number in the mobile settings as stated above.
- Once those two items are completed, refresh your EthosCE account by logging out then back in.
- Your attendance is now recorded and the updated CME hour(s) will be visible in your transcript: https://cme.utsouthwestern.edu/my/activities
How it Works
- The system captures the number on your phone's caller I.D. or the number entered in the online portal. This number must match with the number in the settings of your EthosCE profile.
- The system then matches the Event I.D. to the activity and the amount of CME hour(s) offered.
Once both these items pair, attendance is recorded and the CME hour(s) will be visible in your transcript.
