2020 Annual Meeting CME Credit
U.S Physicians: The AAOS designates for 2020 this live activity for a maximum of 29.5 AMA PRA Category 1 Credits™ . Physicians should claim only the credit commensurate with the extent of their participation in the activity.
International Physicians: The AMA has determined that physicians not licensed in the United States but who participate in this CME activity are eligible for AMA PRA Category 1 Credits™.
Allied Health Professionals: The AAOS is not accredited to offer credit for nurses and other Allied Health Professionals. To determine if activities offering AMA PRA Category 1 Credits™ are acceptable for your licensing continuing education or certification needs please contact the relevant organizations directly.
The AAOS CME transcript system will not allow you to claim CME credit for any educational activities you participated in before you officially check in to the meeting. For instance, if you arrive at the meeting on Tuesday but do not check in until Wednesday, you will not be able to claim CME credits for your Tuesday attendance. Also, only after checking in will you be able to print your CME Certificate of Attendance.
