Medical Physicists

The AAPM will apply to the Commission on Accreditation of Medical Physics Education Programs, Inc. (CAMPEP)for approval of the AAPM 2021 Virtual 63rd Annual Meeting and Exhibition for 218.50 (MPCEC) hours. In addition, AAPM will request up to eight (8) credits for general poster viewing. To obtain MPCEC credit, attendees must view each session in entirety and complete an online evaluation survey. Please note your badge I.D. is required to complete the CEC evaluation survey. The following information outlines the number of credits qualified medical physicists could earn for participating at the meeting.

Coming Soon

Shortly after their scheduled time, all presentations will be available On-Demand, allowing attendees the flexibility to view content at their convenience up to six weeks after the meeting. Attendees can earn MPCEC credits by viewing the On-Demand content and completing the online evaluation survey.

To obtain MPCEC and/or SAM credit, attendees must view each session in entirety and complete an online evaluation survey. Attendance is tracked via virtual software.

Following the meeting and the close of the AAPM online evaluation system, AAPM will provide CAMPEP with participant contact information, credits earned, and the appropriate processing fees in order for individual participants to access their personal AAPM 2021 Virtual 63rd Annual Meeting and Exhibition transcript via the CAMPEP online MPCEC Repository database. Please be advised, CAMPEP transcripts are viewable via the CAMPEP online MPCEC Repository database. Participants will not receive a hardcopy CAMPEP transcript. Should a participant need a hardcopy of their AAPM 2021 Virtual 63rd Annual Meeting and Exhibition transcript, an individual may order a hardcopy transcript from CAMPEP. View details here.

Continuing Education Program Objectives:

  1. Review basic knowledge of diagnostic and therapeutic techniques.
  2. Conduct sessions on the current state of the art and standards of practice.
  3. Provide a peer interchange forum for exchanging information and concepts

NEW This Year

Starting in 2021, meeting content will be available only to Meeting Registrants for one-year following the meeting regardless of AAPM membership status.

Registrants

After the meeting, Registrants will continue to have post-meeting access to the meeting content via the AAPM website as a benefit of their meeting registration.

Earn your credits the easy way…..

For designated content, Registrants are eligible to receive continuing education credit (e.g., CAMPEP MPCEC hours, MDCB, and ASRT Category A credits*) and self-assessment modules (SAM) during the meeting and for six weeks following via the meeting online evaluation system. The online evaluation system will close at 11:59 pm ET, Friday, September 10, 2021. Credits will be posted by September 23, 2021.

Registrants are strongly encouraged to use the online evaluation system process to greatly simplify earning your credits.

Continue to earn credits, but passing quiz now required….

After six weeks, the content will move out of the meeting platform to the AAPM website. Registrants can then continue to earn medical physics continuing educations credits (MPCEC) and self-assessment modules (SAM).

During this phase, to successfully earn MPCEC or SA-CE, a registrant:

  • Must correctly answer quiz questions; 100% pass rate.
  • Cannot attempt the same quiz in the same 24-hour block; you must wait a day before attempting the same quiz.

* ASRT has modified the criteria for earning credits for On-Demand content. AAPM will apply for CAT A credits for watching Simu live content during its scheduled time and performing the required evaluation. AAPM will not apply for CAT A credits for sessions viewed On-Demand after their scheduled time.

Non-Registrants

Starting in 2021, Non-Registrants, regardless of AAPM membership status, will be able to access the meeting content after an interval of time via the AAPM website.

  • AAPM members will gain access through the AAPM Virtual Library one year after the meeting.
  • Non-members will gain access two years after the meeting.

Want access to the 2021 meeting content earlier?

Both AAPM members and non-members may purchase Post-Meeting Access six-weeks following the meeting to access meeting content on the AAPM website.

With the purchase of Post-Meeting Access, both AAPM members and non-members are eligible to earn self-assessment modules (SAM) through successful quiz completion as described above.

MOC/SAM

SAM Process

Many AAPM members now require Maintenance of Certification (MOC) as defined by the American Board of Radiology. SAM are not required but can be used to meet the (ABR) American Board of Radiology self-assessment continuing education (SA-CE) requirements. The 2021 AAPM Virtual 63rd Annual Meeting & Exhibition will offer 82 SAM sessions. 120 SAM SA-CE credit hours will be available.

In an effort to provide increased SAM offerings and to allow the maximum time for speakers to adequately cover presentation content, the AAPM has implemented a new SAM Process.

It’s simple….

  • SAM session attendance will be verified via virtual software.
  • Complete the SAM session questions using the Online Evaluation System. SAM questions are no longer embedded in SAM presentations, so audience interaction is not needed.

Here's how to successfully obtain SA-CE credit:

  • Individuals interested in earning SA-CE credit must register for SAM...pre-meeting.
  • Upon beginning a designated SAM session, your attendance will automatically be verified via the virtual software. You must attend the entire SAM session to be eligible to obtain SAM credit.
  • Attendance is tracked via virtual software. To obtain credit, you must view each session in entirety and answer the SAM questions associated with the session in the Online Evaluation System. Your answer does not need to be correct to earn credit, however, you must respond to all questions for the session to earn credit.
  • Your responses are a self-assessment of knowledge gained during designated sessions. In the evaluation system, you will be provided with the aggregate of how other participants responded to each question along with your answer.
  • The Online Evaluation system will remain open through 11:59 pm ET, Friday September 10, 2021.Evaluations MUST be completed by that time for credits to be earned.

Please note:

  • SAM sessions are open to all meeting attendees. Individuals who do not need SA-CE credits can attend the sessions and complete the online evaluation to obtain MPCEC credit. SAM questions are not provided to Non SAM participants.

EVALUATE IN REAL TIME!

  • Use a personal smartphone, tablet, or laptop to access the Online Evaluation System in order to evaluate a session and complete SAM questions in real time during the session.
  • Attendees will have access to SAM questions prior to and during the meeting.
