Continuing Education Credits, 2023

We are pleased to offer affordable educational opportunities for health professionals.  Having finalized our speaker roster ( and full agenda ( at the end of February for our Sept. 30 - Oct. 2, 2023 in-person and virtual conference, and early in March for our June 11, 2023 Virtual Summit, we immediately in each case launched our re-accreditation processes for the five accreditors we utilize.  Some of them do not allow "pending" statements to be disclosed on this page.  Below, we will show complete information about each type of continuing education credit to be awarded, as soon as we are permitted in each case.  Each re-accreditation requires two to eight weeks.

You may view all our PAST Oct. 2022 conference's continuing education credits HERE.

To receive continuing education credits you must register for the conference with the "Physicians" or "Other Professionals" option, not with the “General Public” or “Students and Medical Residents” option.  Partial attendance would result in pro-rating of credits.

CPEUs in Dietetics:   Pending approval for 19 CPEUs for the Sept. 30 - Oct. 2, 2023 in-person  and virtual conference, and for 5.5 CPEUs for the June 11, 2023 Virtual Summit.

CPEUs apply to Registered Dietitians and Registered Dietitian Nutritionists (RDs, RDNs), and Dietetic Technicians, Registered, and Nutrition and Dietetics Technicians, Registered (DTRs, NDTRs).  All P-POD CPEUs are at Levels 2 or 3.

ABLM/ACLM Exam-takers, for in-person participation only:  19 hours (full 3-day attendance), 14 hours (Sat.-Sun. attendance only) or 12 hours (Sun.-Mon. attendance only) at the Sept. 30 - Oct. 2, 2023 P-POD Conference will automatically be approved for the In-person CME requirement in Lifestyle Medicine, for ABLM/ACLM Diplomate credentialing and examinations, as soon as this conference is re-approved for Continuing Medical Education credits.

Maintenance of Certification (M.O.C.) requirements, satisfied either by in-person or virtual participation, for Diplomates of the American Board of Lifestyle Medicine and Diplomates of the American College of Lifestyle Medicine:  All attendance options at either the Sept. 30 - Oct. 2 conference (19, 14 or 12 hours) or June 11 Virtual Summit (5.5 hours) will automatically apply toward M.O.C. needs after the event is re-approved for Continuing Medical Education credits.


The American Board of Lifestyle Medicine has approved every P-POD Conference since 2018 for satisfying its 10-hour "In-person CME" prerequisite for candidates for its annual Lifestyle Medicine certifying examination (credentialing for Diplomate of the American Board of Lifestyle Medicine or Diplomate of the American College of Lifestyle Medicine, as applicable to physicians, nurses, dietitians and other practitioners/professionals).  That exam for 2023 is scheduled for dates beginning Nov. 25, and ABLM's rigid deadline to register for it is Sept. 30.  As soon as AMA PRA Category 1 CME Credits™ are approved for any in-person P-POD Conference, ABLM and ACLM specifically recognize these for their credentialing purposes.

P-POD produces one of the five U.S. conferences qualified for the examination purposes described above.  For the first two COVID-19 years 2020 and 2021, ABLM made an emergency exception, and allowed virtual conferences to meet its In-person CME requirement, but for 2022 onward it has very clearly and specifically returned to the normal policies of honoring fully-qualified in-person conferences only.

For persons who are already Lifestyle Medicine Diplomates:  If you are using the Maintenance of Certification plan that requires 30 Continuing Medical Education credits in the 5 years after your credentialing, then the CME credits approved for ALL P-POD Conferences (in-person OR virtual) will count toward your 30 hour requirement.
