The AAPM Virtual Summer School will seek approval from the Commission on Accreditation of Medical Physics Education Programs, Inc. (CAMPEP) for MPCEC continuing education credit hours.
The SAM quiz questions are available for viewing before each SAM session starts.
MOC/SAM (SELF ASSESSMENT MODULES) as defined by the ABR
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 webbased 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 requirments 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: Before entering a SAM Session you will need to drop one QR code ticket into the designated bin near the session entrance for attendance verification.
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 August 30 deadline.
AAPM Transfers SAM Credits to the CME Gateway.
Update your CME Gateway account:
The 2021 AAPM Virtual Summer School Meeting will apply to the American Society of Radiologic Technologists for approval of Category A credits for the meeting. ASRT has modified the criteria for earning credits for on demand content. AAPM will apply for CAT A credits for watching simulive 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.
