CECH Information

In accordance with the Council on Podiatric Medical Education (CPME), DERMfoot is required to monitor educational session attendance for continuing education (CE) verification. You must sign-in twice daily at designated times for CECH credit. 

Attendees will be sent transcripts reflecting only the number of Continuing Education Contact Hours earned by signing in for general sessions. To receive the maximum number of CECH, DPMs must sign-in at each of the posted times. 

A copy of your Continuing education verification transcripts will be sent to the email you provided during registration by November 15, 2020. If you did not provide an email address with your registration, please send your details to Admin@Dermfoot.com. Each registrant is responsible for reporting CECH to all appropriate licensing boards and agencies requiring continuing education.  Any requests for CECH Certificate copies made after March 1, 2021, will be subjected to a $35 administrative fee.

DERMfoot cannot supply CECH transcripts prior to November 1, 2020, as it takes time to process verification reports.
