Earn SAM Credit
Qualified by the American Board of Radiology in meeting the criteria for self-assessment toward the purpose of fulfilling requirements in the ABR Maintenance of Certification Program.
“Breast Imaging from A to Z: How to Read Like (or Better Than!) the Experts” has been qualified by the American Board of Radiology for 8 SAM credits.
SAM credits are required for radiologists certified since 2002, and strongly suggested for all radiologists. Due to recent CMS negotiations with the American Board of Radiologist, EVEN radiologists with grandfathered lifetime certification are now encouraged to participate in the MOC process. Specifically, pay for performance incentives–that may evolve into penalties for noncompliance–are being linked to “being in the process of obtaining” MOC. You can contact the ABR for specifics.
As an attendee of the Breast Imaging from A to Z course, you are eligible to obtain 8 SAMS credits offered for this course. The process is very simple and will take only a few minutes to complete. At the course, you will be given a website link to take the post-course quiz and print out your own SAMs certificate.
The Las Vegas course has been approved for up to 16.5 ARRT Category A CE credits for those technologists attending the entire course.
The New York course is pending approval for up to 15.5 ARRT Category A CE credits for those technologists attending the entire course.
The Hawaii course is pending approval for up to 16.5 ARRT Category A CE credits for those technologists attending the entire course.
