It’s been a big year for the GeriPal podcast. We’ve published 45 podcasts in 2023 and have had a total of 400,000 downloads, plus another 40,000 views on YouTube. We’ve added a TikTok channel, and we’ve surpassed our fundraising goal of $30,000 to offset production costs for each episode (we are still accepting, though, tax-deductible donations to support future podcasts!)
We couldn’t have done this without the amazing support of our listeners and donors. So, to thank everyone, we are happy to announce the biggest change to the GeriPal podcast since we started the show. We are going to be offering CME in 2024!
How will CME work for the podcast? We’ve partnered with the UCSF Office of CME to offer for a small fee ($100) AMA PRA Category 1 credit for podcast episodes (which should work for most physicians, nurses, NPs, and PAs). We are aiming for about half of our podcasts to have CME credit attached to them for the year, each one designated for a maximum of 0.75 AMA PRA Category 1 credits, so that would be about 20 credits per year if all goes well for the $100 fee. If you don’t want to claim credit, no need to sign up, as GeriPal has always been and will always be free to listen to.
To register for CME click here https://cme-reg.configio.com/pd/3315?code=6PhHcL752r. To claim credit, go to the episode webpage after listening to the podcast. If that podcast is CME eligible there will be a note and a link to claim credit.
Thank you all and wishing you a very happy new year filled with GeriPal joy.
Alex and Eric
