Part 2: Lifelong Learning and Self-Assessment
Last verified on January 2, 2020To satisfy Maintenance of Certification (MOC) Part 2, the ABR requires diplomates to attain 75 CME credits every three years, at least 25 of which must be credits from Self-Assessment CME (SA-CME) activities. There are two types of SA-CME activities:
- Self-Assessment Modules (SAMs). Created by societies and other organizations and prequalified by the ABR, SAMs are primarily podium presentations with a post-session assessment instrument. Some organizations call these "live SA-CME,” and others call them “SAMs.” Both terms are equivalent, with the number of credits determined by the ACCME or an ACCME-accredited category 1 CME provider.
- Enduring AMA Category 1 CME offerings. Enduring activities are certified CME that endure over a specified time. These include print, audio, video and Internet materials such as monographs, podcasts, CD/DVD, archived webinars as well as other web-based activities.
