The AAPM Virtual Radiation Therapy, Diagnostic, and Nuclear Medicine review courses will seek approval from the Commission on Accreditation of Medical Physics Education Programs, Inc. (CAMPEP) for a total of 25.25 MPCEC continuing education credit hours. (Radiation Therapy = 10 MPCEC), (Nuclear Medicine = 10.25), (Diagnostic = 20.25) or (Diagnostic/Nuclear Medicine Package = 25.25).
MOC/SAM (SELF ASSESSMENT MODULES) as defined by the ABR
The 2021 AAPM Virtual Review Courses will apply for approval of 12 SAM sessions for a total of 21.25 SA-CE credit hours.
Many AAPM members now require Maintenance of Certification (MOC) as defined by the American Board of Radiology (ABR). At least 75 continuing education (CE) credits are required every 3 years. CE credits may be met by a combination of Category 1 credits (CAMPEP or ACCME) and self-directed educational projects (SDEPs). At least 25 of the 75 CE credits must be self-assessment CE (SA-CE). Other than ABR prequalified SAMs and SDEPs, the ABR will count all AMA Category 1 CME activities in “enduring materials” (including web-based and print) and “journal-based CME” formats toward the MOC self-assessment requirement. SAMS are not required, but can be used to meet the (SA-CE) requirements. Information regarding the MOC requirements can be found at What is MOC.
SAM Attendee Process…
To assist attendees who require MOC, AAPM will offer ABR approved SAM sessions. AAPM will use QR code tickets for tracking of SAM session attendance. The ABR requires attendance verification. SAM questions will be included as part of the online evaluation survey. SAM questions are no longer embedded in SAM presentations, so audience interaction is not needed. In order to receive SAM credit, participants must answer the questions online. There is no pass/fail. SAM credit for these sessions is available only to attendees who complete the required online evaluation of the session and whose attendance has been verified.
Please note: Attendance is tracked remotely. To obtain SAM credits attendees must view each session in entirely and evaluate each session via the online evaluation system.
Evaluate in real time! Use your phone, iPad or laptop to access the Online Evaluation System. You may go online at any time, during the session or after the session, as long as you complete the evaluation survey by the July 2 deadline.
