My work as a Certified Personal Trainer requires that I pay out-of-pocket for a majority of my continuing education. Due to budgeting constraints, this means I must be highly selective of the workshops I attend and the post-tests I submit.

I have always admired how effortless it is for physicians to collect CME credits, and I would participate in far more continuing education than I do now if the costs were lower. For example, I would happily pay an additional $20-$30 for my annual membership dues if I knew it included free CE in the journals.

I would have no problem attending a CME workshop subsidized by a pharmaceutical company or device manufacturer if the information I received was fair and balanced, and in accordance with independent guildlines established by the community.
