MOC/SAMs (SELF ASSESSMENT MODULES)

Completion of two Self Assessment Modules (SAMs) per year is a requirement for the Maintenance of Certification (MOC) process as defined by the American Board of Radiology (ABR). AAPM/COMP program organizers have identified sessions in Diagnostic, Nuclear Medicine and Therapy Physics to be offered with audience response technology at the annual meeting in 2011.

How Do I Register for SAMs sessions/credits at the 2011 Joint AAPM/COMP Annual Meeting?

  1. Pre-register for the meeting.  You will not be able to register for SAMs after July 6 (there will be no on-site registration.)  Prior to July 6, if you have already registered for the meeting, but did not register for SAMs, you can still add SAMs by calling the registration call center at 1-508-743-8511.

  2. You will be asked if you require Maintenance of Certification (MOC) as defined by ABR.  Say YES.

  3. You will be given the option to register for SAMs sessions ($10 to rent the audience response unit, and participate in as many SAMs sessions as you wish).

  4. When you arrive at the Vancouver Convention Centre to pick up your badge and program materials, you will be given a ticket for your audience response unit.  Exchange your ticket for the audience response unit at the SAMs counter.  NOTE: You will be asked for credit card verification.  In the event you do not return your audience response unit, your credit card will be charged $75.

  5. Go to the SAMs sessions of your choice.  We'll post the list of SAMs sessions in May, and send an email to all AAPM/COMP members.

  6. During a SAMs session, the speaker will ask interactive questions.  You will be able to respond using your SAMs audience response unit.  The audience feedback will appear in real time on the screen. There is no pass/fail and you will not be graded on your responses.

  7. At the end of the meeting, please return your audience response unit to the SAMs counter.

  8. Post meeting, AAPM will provide the ABR with required statistical information of the SAMs program. AAPM will send to each SAM participant a listing of sessions evaluated, to be used by the participant for self-reporting the activities to the ABR. 

  9. To confirm attendance, attendees must complete the an on-line survey for the SAMs session. Internet terminals will be available on-site for this purpose. You may also use your own laptop at the Wireless Lounge either inside or outside the exhibit hall, or in the comfort of your hotel room. Please note you will require your badge I.D. in order to complete the session survey.

Don't require Maintenance of Certification, but still want to sit in on a SAMs session?

No problem.  The sessions are open to everyone.  An audience response unit is not required to attend.

Visa Letter of Invitation

Entry into Canada is solely determined by Canadian Border Services Agency (CBSA) officials in accordance with Canadian law. Please see the CBSA’s website for details. Canadian law requires that all persons entering Canada carry both proof of citizenship and proof of identity. A valid U.S. passport satisfies these requirements for U.S. citizens. If U.S. citizen travelers to Canada do not have a passport, passport card or approved alternate document such as a NEXUS card, they must show a government-issued photo ID (e.g. Driver’s License) and proof of U.S. citizenship such as a U.S. birth certificate, naturalization certificate, or expired U.S. passport. Children under 16 need only present proof of U.S. citizenship.

International visitors to Canada (not US citizens or US permanent residents) must carry a valid passport and, if required, a visa. Citizens from the United Kingdom, France, Germany, Japan, the Republic of Korea, Australia and some other countries do not require a visa to enter Canada. Visit the Citizenship and Immigration Canada website for a complete list of countries whose citizens require visas to enter Canada. Click here for the CBSA letter recognizing the 2011 AAPM/COMP Joint Meeting, which may be helpful in facilitating your entry to Canada.

APPLY EARLY! AAPM offers a letter of invitation for attendees of the 2011 Joint AAPM/COMP Meeting. The visa letter of invitation, though not required for the visa application, can assist as a supporting document. Present this letter of invitation from AAPM to the consular officer during the visa interview. This letter by no means guarantees admittance, but can provide compelling evidence for immigration officials to consider. Please note that AAPM cannot intervene with embassies on behalf of any participant.
