    The Multidisciplinary Antenatal Diagnosis And Management Conference is an initiative of the Brown Medical School Program in Fetal Medicine. CME credits are provided through Women & Infants Hospital of Rhode Island, which is accredited by the Rhode Island Medical Society to sponsor intrastate continuing medical education for physicians. Women & Infants Hospital designates this continuing medical education activity for a maximum of 1 credit hour in Category 1 towards the AMA's Physician Recognition Award. Each physician should claim only those hours of credit that he/she actually spent in the educational activity.
