ABO Self-Assessment CME (SACME) Credits

Portions of the 2016 ASCRS•ASOA Annual Symposium & Congress meet the Self-Assessment CME requirements defined by the American Board of Ophthalmology (ABO). Please be advised that the ABO is not an accrediting body for purposes of any CME program. ABO does not sponsor this or any outside activity, and ABO does not endorse any particular CME activity. Complete information regarding the ABO Self-Assessment CME Maintenance of Certification requirements are available here.

The following sessions from this year’s ASCRS•ASOA Annual Symposium & Congress have been pre-approved as self-assessment credit by the ABO, for a maximum of 10.25 AMA PRA Category 1 CreditsTM that qualify for SACME:

S-1, S-2, S-4, S-6, S-8, S-16, S-17, S-25, S-26

In addition, select sessions from the 2016 ASCRS Glaucoma Day program are pre-approved for self-assessment credit by the ABO, for a maximum of 4.75 AMA PRA Category 1 Credits that qualify for SACME:

8:35 – 9:25 a.m. Imaging: Practical Tips and Future Technologies

For Self-Assessment CME, complete your standard CME evaluation and keep track of the sessions you attended to report them within your standard ABO MOC credit reporting. MOC credit is self-reported by the learner and must be tracked individually. Note: ASCRS does not keep track of the SACME sessions an individual attends and will not be able to provide a report containing this information.

Credit designated as “self-assessment” is AMA PRA Category 1 CreditTM and is also pre-approved by the ABO for the Maintenance of Certification (MOC) Part II CME requirements.
