How do you earn CME credit?

Annual Meeting
CME credit is earned by attending educational sessions. For each hour you attend an educational session, you earn 1 AMA PRA Category 1 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.

Self-Assessment Exam
CME credit is earned by completing the 100-question exam and evaluation. Users should then review their exam feedback to best determine future CME activity planning.

Registrants' attendance at individual sessions is not recorded by AACAP. It is your responsibility to keep track of which sessions you attend, and claim only those credits commensurate with the extent of your participation in the educational activity. We recommend you note the sessions you attend in the Program Book (distributed onsite at the meeting) and keep it for your records.

Will I earn CME credits by purchasing the session recordings or notebooks from AACAP's meetings?

No. CME credit is not available for session recordings or notebooks purchased from AACAP meetings.
