The deadline for claiming Continuing Medical Education (CME) or Maintenance of Certification (MOC) self-assessment credits from the 2021 Vascular Annual Meeting (VAM) is Sept. 24.
The SVS designates this live course for 35.25 AMA PRA Category 1 Credit(s)™. Physicians should claim only the credit commensurate with the extent of their participation. Full credit is not available for attendance at two sessions occurring simultaneously.
Multiple sessions also permit earning of MOC credits, with 16 available.
Those claiming credits must complete a course evaluation first. This feedback provides SVS with important information to help organizers of future annual meetings make programming decisions. The 2021 VAM Planner (vascular.org/Planner21) and mobile app both include a link to credits and certificates. The link went live after the first plenary session on Aug. 18.
