SMJ publishes monthly continuing medical education (CME) articles with online CME quizzes that have been pre-approved for the Singapore Medical Council (SMC) Category 3B CME Programme.

In each issue of the SMJ, at least two CME articles are published. The passing mark for each CME quiz is 60%, and one CME point per quiz is awarded for successful candidates. The editorial office will submit the list of successful candidates to the SMC. The MCR numbers of successful candidates will be posted on the SMJ website one week after the closing date of the CME quizzes.
 

With effect from the July 2017 issue, access to the SMJ CME quizzes will be subject to a charge of SGD21.40 (inclusive of 7% GST) per monthly issue.

As part of membership benefits, SMA Members will enjoy complimentary access through their SMA Membership Portal.
