Education for Child Abuse Medical Providers

Courses : Overview and Instructions

All CHAMP courses are offered free of charge. However, some courses offer the option of taking the course for Continuing Medical Education (CME) credit. There is a fee for this credit. In addition, some courses can also be taken for American Board of Pediatrics Maintenance of Certification (MOC) credit. This credit requires a fee in addition to the CME fee. Each course has a description page that explains whether the course offers credit and how to pay for this credit. If you have questions related to Continuing Medical Education, please contact JoAnne Race, .

To take CHAMP online coursework, you need to register for the course. This requires having a CHAMP login account.

Completing a Quiz or Test and Answering the Survey

At the end of each short courses is a quiz. After you take the quiz, you will be notified of your score and see the correct answers. The Evaluating Child Sexual Abuse course has two tests that have a passing score of 80% each. When you take a test you will be immediately be notified whether you passed it. If you need or want to achieve a passing score, you can retake these tests until your score is at least 80%. These tests do not send you the correct answers.  

The final step is to answer a short survey. Your input about the course is important to us. This survey is a requirement if you are taking the course for CME credit or the course is part of another course or program. Your survey serves as a record of your taking the course. Your responses, however, are tabulated anonymously. 

Policy on Privacy and Confidentiality

To grant you Continuing Medical Education (CME) credits, the SUNY Buffalo CME Office requires we share the registration information you provided. Therefore, CHAMP will share your information with the SUNY Buffalo CME Office if you take a course for CME credit and pay the CME fee. If you are a board certified pediatrician and are taking coursework for American Board of Pediatrics Maintenance of Certification (MOC) credit and pay the MOC fee, the SUNY Buffalo CME Office will share your identifying information with the American Board of Pediatrics so that you receive MOC points.
