Warning! AMA PRA Category 1 Credit ??

What about AMA PRA Category 1 Credit ??
Is it useful for a medical student? or just for physicians?
Is it good to add it in CV as a medical student?
Do I have to take these credits from one source or it does not make a difference If I take credits from many sources?

I found that link:
http://www.ama-assn.org/ama/pub/abou...on-award.shtml

But my questions are not answered there!!

CME credit hours are not needed for medical students. They are only needed for practicing physicians. It's a system developed so that the authorities make sure that physicians are always updated and reading. You are still a student and you are already reading everyday

If you are still a medical student it might be a bad idea to put them in the CV because then the program director will say "hmmm, why this guy is doing online CME? They are not teaching him at school! How come he's having time to do these things during his busy med school years! ....etc"
