Wrapping Up ISCT 2018: Claiming Your CME Credit
You came, you learned, and now it’s time to claim your CME credit. Our 2018 symposium is accredited for up to 28.25 total AMA PRA Category 1 Credits, and that accreditation is comprised of two parts - up to 18.75 credits for the live meeting and up to 9.5 credits for the virtual experience (the bundle of on-demand content included with your registration). Now that the symposium has concluded and you’ve had time to enjoy not only the live meeting, but also your virtual bundle of content, it’s time to claim your credits.
How to get your CME:
Attendees will receive access to the PeerPoint CME Vault online system approximately one week after the conference has ended. You will receive an email with instructions from PeerPoint to the email you registered with.
The maximum amount of credit allotted to the live conference is 18.75 credits, and the maximum amount of credits allotted to the virtual experience is 9.50. If you are claiming full credits for both, that allows for a maximum of 28.25 CME credits.
Claiming SAM Credits:
You will receive a link to your email address after the course where you can take the SAM quiz. This link will only be available for 30 days post course. After those 30 days you will not be eligible for SAM Credit.
*SAMS have been approved for the following sessions: Managing Emergencies and Lung Cancer Screening (4 SAMs available)
Claiming Technologist Credit:
Technologists were required to sign in and out of each ISCT 2018 session they attended on the technologist attendance form provided by the registration staff. Once you complete your sign in and evaluation, you will receive your certificate upon completion of the course and evaluation.
Please note that physicians should claim only the credit commensurate with the extent of their participation in the activity. If you attended the live meeting but didn’t watch your virtual content, you should claim credit for just the live meeting, or vice versa.
Continued education is incredibly important. Radiology is a field that is constantly changing, and the advancements we’ve seen in CT technology, applications, and protocols over just the last year in itself are proof of that. The most successful physicians are the ones who actively dedicate time to continuing the pursuit of knowledge and excellence through educational opportunities like the ISCT symposium, and we want to thank you for allowing us to play a part in that process.
