How do you earn CME credit?
CME credit is earned by attending the educational sessions. Each hour you attend an educational session, you earn an hour of category I continuing medical education credit. It is your responsibility to keep track of the sessions you attend. You should note the sessions you attend in your Program Book and keep it for your records. AACAP does not keep records of registrants’ attendance at individual Annual Meeting sessions.
Within one week after the meeting, attendees will be emailed a link to the General Evaluation Form. Once completed, attendees are able to print or save the CME certificate from their personal computer. Please remember to confirm that AACAP has your correct email address when you register for the meeting.
