An interpreting physician teaches the same ten-hour course to residents in mammography every year. Can the physician count this for 30 hours of continuing education over a 36-month period?

No. FDA considers teaching in a residency program as equivalent to category I continuing education. However, the physician may only count the ten hours (ten units) of this training once in a 36-month period toward meeting the requirement of having 15 category I continuing medical education units in mammography.
