CME Attestation/Evaluation Instructions
In accordance with the Continuing Medical Education (CME) accreditation requirements for both the American Osteopathic Association (AOA) and the Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education (ACCME) through our joint providership of Postgraduate Institute for Medicine, you must complete an evaluation of each session attended at the 2017 Annual Clinical Assembly of Osteopathic Surgeons (ACA) in order to receive CME credit. Physicians should only claim credit commensurate with the extent of their participation in the ACA educational program and/or activity. CME hours attended at the meeting will be tracked through an online evaluation system. Paid registrants have access to the system via the American College of Osteopathic Surgeons (ACOS) website using the instructions below.
Attendees eligible to earn CME for the 2017 ACA can earn AOA Category 1-A Credit hours as well as AMA PRA Category 1 Credit(s)TM. In order to claim CME credits for the meeting, registrants must evaluate each lecture attended. The system will calculate the total number of hours attended after the registrant has completed their session evaluations and the overall evaluation. Once all steps are completed in-full, certificates for both your AOA and AMA credit hours will be made available to print or email for your records. CME certificates will not be mailed to you from the ACOS office. ACOS will submit CME credits on your behalf to the proper accrediting body.
The deadline to claim your CME credits is no later than December 31, 2017. Attendees that do not submit their evaluation by the deadline will not receive credit for the 2017 Annual Clinical Assembly.
