CME Credit Process Update
The American Board of Surgery (ABS) Discontinued the CME Credit Self-Claiming Process for Diplomates on July 1, 2023.
ABS recently made changes to its CME processes, which impact the way that Diplomates interact with the Board, upload CME credits and meet certification requirements. SVS is committed to complying with the new rules and making your ability to claim credit as seamless as possible, however, we are still aligning our systems to meet the new requirements. Ensure your CME credits earned with SVS are transferred to ABS by clicking the link below.
