American College Of Surgeons - Inspiring Quality: Highest Standards, Better Outcomes

Continuing Education Credit

The 2021 Quality and Safety Conference VIRTUAL is offering CME, CNE, and NCRA (CE) continuing education credits based on attendees participation in the activity.  Associated evaluations should be completed by attendees after they have watched all the certified sessions of interest. Evaluations may only be completed once in order to claim credits. Therefore, attendees should not proceed until they have completed their participation in the certified content for which they wish to claim credit. In order to claim credits, a completed Global Evaluation for the Conference is also required.
Evaluation responses will be autosaved in the system and can be accessed at a later time by logging back in.

The deadline to claim CME, CNE, NCRA (CE) credits or a Certificate of Completion is August 16, 2021

For ACS Members: Please note that Certificates will be available on MyCME 1–2 weeks following the close of credit claiming.
