Conference Evaluation, Verification of Attendance and Self-Assessment CME
All information must be submitted no later than Monday, March 23rd to receive CME and/or self-assessment credits.
The Central Surgical Association is offering the opportunity for Self-Assessment CME from our Annual Meeting held in Chicago. All meeting attendees are encouraged to access the system below to fill out a conference evaluation, submit a verification of attendance form, take self-assessment exams (optional), and print an ACS approved credit certificate.
All meeting attendees may log in to the system at the following link:
EMAIL: Your Email used to register for the meeting
PASSWORD: Last Name
Step 1. Verification of Attendance
Once you complete and submit your Verification of Attendance form, you may continue on to Step 2 or 3:
- If you are wanting to claim Self-Assessment credit,
select and complete desired Self-Assessment exams (see Step 2).
- If you are not wanting to claim Self-Assessment credit, you may skip
Step 2 and complete the Course Evaluation (see Step 3).
Step 2: Self-Assessment Exams
You may elect to take all, part or none of the self-assessment exam.
If you choose NOT to take any portions of the exam,
go to Step 4 to download your CME Certificate.
A passing score of 75% or higher is required to receive self-assessment credit for a portion of the meeting. Upon submitting your answers, you will immediately find out if you passed or failed, and which questions were answered incorrectly.
You may take an exam an unlimited number of times.
Once you have passed all portions of the exam for which you are seeking credit, your certificate will be available from the site for you to download to your computer (Step 4).
If you do not pass all portions of the exam, you will not receive the self-assessment credits for that portion.
*A hard copy of the self-assessment exam is available at the registration desk, if you would like to view the entire exam as a reference.
Step 3. Course Evaluation
Course evaluation form must be completed prior to moving on to Step 4.
Step 4: Download CME/Self-Assessment Credit Certificate
You will NOT receive a confirmation email with your exam results. Therefore, the Central Surgical Association strongly recommends you print the certificate upon completion of all exams. The Central Surgical Association will provide confirmation of your completed exam results with our final CME report, submitted to the American College of Surgeons for this program. If you are a fellow of the American College of Surgeons, your CME credit will be posted to your MyCME portal page within 3 months following the event.
