Self Assessment Modules (SAM)

SAM Information


Many AAPM members now require Maintenance of Certification (MOC) as defined by the American Board of Radiology (ABR). At least 75 continuing education (CE) credits are required every 3 years. CE credits may be met by a combination of Category 1 credits (CAMPEP or ACCME) and self-directed educational projects (SDEPs). At least 25 of the 75 CE credits must be self-assessment CE (SA-CE). Other than ABR prequalified SAMs and SDEPs, the ABR will count all AMA Category 1 CME activities in “enduring materials” (including webbased and print) and “journal-based CME” formats toward the MOC self-assessment requirement. SAMS are not required, but can be used to meet the (SA-CE) requirements. Information regarding the MOC requirments can be found at What is MOC.

To assist attendees who require MOC , the AAPM will offer 17 ABR approved SAMs sessions.

The AAPM Transfers SAMs Credits to the ABR via the CME Gateway.

Update your CME Gateway account:

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.
