ABO Self-Assessment CME (SACME) Credits

ASCRS has offered pre-approved Self-Assessment CME (SACME) credit for select ASCRS ASOA Annual Meeting sessions from 2014-2019. For a list of sessions that were pre-approved for self-assessment credit by the American Board of Ophthalmology (ABO) for a particular year, please contact

Reporting SACME

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.
