SAM Credit Hours

 

Purchase this if you wish to claim SAM alone or a combination of SAM and CME/CMLE for the AMP 2017 Annual Meeting.

 

 

If you wish to purchase only CME/CMLE for the AMP 2017 Annual Meeting , go here.

 

SAM Credit

This activity ("Association for Molecular Pathology 2017 Annual Meeting") is approved by the American Board of Pathology for a maximum of 12.5 SAM Credits. Physicians should only claim credit commensurate with the extent of their participation in the activity. Participants must successfully complete the online exam (answering at least 80% of the questions correctly).

 

CME/CMLE Credit
This activity ("Association for Molecular Pathology 2017 Annual Meeting") was planned and implemented in accordance with the Essential Areas and policies of the Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education through the joint providership of American Society for Clinical Pathology (ASCP) and the Association for Molecular Pathology (AMP). The ASCP is accredited by the ACCME to provide continuing medical education for physicians.

 

The ASCP designates this live educational activity for a maximum of 21.5 AMA PRA Category 1 Credit(s)TM. Physicians should claim only the credit commensurate with the extent of their participation in the activity.

 

This continuing medical laboratory education activity is recognized by the ASCP for up to 21.5 hours of CMLE credit. ASCP CMLE credit hours are acceptable for the ASCP Board of Certification (BOC) Certification Maintenance Program (CMP).

 

After the annual meeting, you will be given access to the SAM online exam and online evaluation.

 

Dates:

Deadline to purchase and claim SAM and/or CME/CMLE for the AMP 2017 Annual Meeting is January 31, 2018 11:59pm (23:50) Eastern Time. This allows those who claim SAM credit for eligible content to apply for CME credit for all other eligible hours.

Certificates must be downloaded and/or printed for your records before the expiration date of February 2, 2018.
