Accreditation for Physicians
The American College of Cardiology Foundation (ACCF) is accredited by the Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education to provide continuing medical education for physicians.

The ACCF designates this enduring material for a maximum of 139 AMA PRA Category 1 Credit(s)™. Physicians should claim only the credit commensurate with the extent of their participation in the activity.

While offering CME credits noted above, this activity is not intended to provide extensive training or certification in the field.

MOC Information
Successful completion of this CME activity, which includes participation in the evaluation component, enables the participant to earn up to 139 MOC points in the American Board of Internal Medicine's (ABIM) Maintenance of Certification (MOC) program. Participants will earn MOC points equivalent to the amount of CME credits claimed for the activity. It is the CME activity provider's responsibility to submit participant completion information to ACCME for the purpose of granting ABIM MOC credit.

ECME Information

EchoSAP is accredited by the European Board for Accreditation in Cardiology (EBAC) for 139 hours of External CME credits*. Each participant should claim only those hours of credit that have actually been spent in the educational activity.

Apply for credit through the post-course evaluation.

*ACC is currently building the technology to support EBAC External CME credits and you may begin claiming them for EchoSAP in November 2018.
