While Clinical Congress 2022 comes to an end today, all registered attendees—through May 1, 2023—will have continued access to an on-demand library of educational content and the opportunity to claim Continuing Medical Education (CME) credits, as well as meet content, compliance, and site survey regulatory requirements.
The ACS designated the In-Person (Live and On Demand) Clinical Congress for a maximum of 243.25 AMA PRA Category 1 Credits™ and the Virtual (Live-Streaming and On-Demand) Clinical Congress for a maximum of 196.75 AMA PRA Category 1 Credits™.
CME credits may be claimed following participation in a live session (either attended in-person or viewed through livestream), or through subsequent viewing of the recorded content virtually (on demand).
Residents and allied health professionals are eligible for a Certificate of Completion.
Credit to Address Regulatory Mandates
Certain state licensing boards have established specific content requirements for CME credit. Clinical Congress sessions that address state-specific content are designated as Credit to Address Regulatory Mandates. When claiming CME credit for these sessions, you can elect to include the Credit to Address Regulatory Mandates, and it will be documented as part of your CME Certificate and Clinical Congress Transcript.
Self-Assessment credit—available for some sessions and courses—requires successful completion of a posttest. The process of earning Self-Assessment credit is voluntary and not a prerequisite to claiming CME credit.
Self-Assessment credit counts toward American Board of Surgery Maintenance of Certification (MOC) Part 2. (For ABS Diplomates, the MOC Part 2 requirement applies to those who have not yet completed the first ABS Continuous Certification Program Assessment Exam.)
Credit to Address ACS Accreditation/Verification Requirements
Institutions that are accredited or verified by the ACS require staff to earn credits in order to meet compliance and site survey requirements in certain content areas. Clinical Congress sessions that include this content are designated as Credit to Address ACS Accreditation/Verification Requirements. When claiming CME Credit for these sessions, you can elect to include the Credit to Address ACS Accreditation/ Verification Requirements, and it will be documented as part of your CME Certificate and Clinical Congress transcript.
