For SACME, complete your standard CME evaluation and keep track of the sessions you attended to report them within your standard ABO MOC credit reporting. MOC credit is self-reported by the learner and must be tracked individually.

Note: ASCRS does not keep track of the SACME sessions an individual attends and will not be able to provide a report containing this information.

Credit designated as “self-assessment” is AMA PRA Category 1 Credit™ and is also pre-approved by the ABO for the MOC Part II CME requirements.
