Part 2: Lifelong Learning and Self-Assessment
Last verified on August 26, 2020To satisfy Maintenance of Certification (MOC) Part 2, the ABR requires medical physics diplomates to attain 75 CE credits every three years, at least 25 of which must be credits from Self-Assessment CE (SA-CE) activities. There are three types of SA-CE 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-CE,” and others call them “SAMs.” Both terms are equivalent, with the number of credits determined by the CAMPEP- or ACCME-accredited category 1 CE provider.
- Enduring CAMPEP or AMA Category 1 CE offerings. Enduring activities are certified CE that endure over a specified time. These include print, audio, video and Internet materials such as monographs, podcasts, CD/DVD, archived webinars, and other web-based activities.
- Self-directed Educational Projects (SDEPs). Although not required, SDEPs may be counted as SA-CE credit. A maximum of one SDEP may be recorded yearly. Fifteen SA-CE credits are given for each completed SDEP, and project samples can be found on the ABR website. For more information on SDEP projects, click here.
