2017 Continuing Education Information

2017 Continuing Education Information | ASCRS


The American Society of Colon and Rectal Surgeons (ASCRS) is accredited by the Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education (ACCME) to provide continuing medical education (CME) for physicians. ASCRS takes responsibility for the content, quality and scientific integrity of this CME activity.

Continuing Medical Education Credit

The American Society of Colon and Rectal Surgeons (ASCRS) designates this live activity for a maximum of 44 AMA PRA Category 1 Credits™. Physicians should only claim credit commensurate with the extent of their participation in the activity. Attendees can earn 1 CME credit for every 60 minutes of educational time.

Self-Assessment Credit

Many of the sessions offered are designated as self-assessment CME credit, applicable to Part 2 of the ABCRS MOC program. In order to claim self-assessment credit, attendees must participate in a post-test that must be completed and passed with a minimum score of 75% in order to receive Self-Assessment (MOC) Credit. If for some reason you do not pass the test, you will receive the regular CME credit for the session.

The 2017 scientific offerings assist the physician with the six core competencies first adopted by the Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education (ACGME) and the American Board of Medical Specialties (ABMS).
