Non-Physician Credit Hours
(Certificate of Participation)
The Society for Vascular Surgery is accredited by the Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education (ACCME) to provide continuing medical education for physicians.
The Society for Vascular Surgery designates this live activity for a maximum of 27 AMA PRA Category 1 Credit(s)™. Physicians should only claim the credit commensurate with the extent of their participation in the activity.
The 2023 Vascular Annual Meeting also includes a self-assessment component for select sessions that meets the requirements of the American Board of Surgery Continuous Certification Program.
Important information about your CME credits:
The American Board of Surgery (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 in the process of aligning our systems to meet these new requirements.
To ensure all your CME credits earned with SVS are transferred to the ABS, please visit this website to review the process.
