New SACME Option: 2018 American Glaucoma Society Annual Meeting

The American Board of Ophthalmology will recognize attendance at the 2018 American Glaucoma Society Annual Meeting for up to 8 credits of Self-Assessment CME. The Annual Meeting will be held March 1-4, 2018 at the Marriott Marquis Times Square, New York, NY.

What is Self-Assessment CME? Self-Assessment CME, known as "SACME," promotes active learning. Activities that qualify for self-assessment involve question and answer exercises designed to evaluate the participant's understanding of the activity's subject. Diplomates certified or recertified as of 2012 should accumulate 8 SACME credits annually as part of their overall CME tally (an average of 25 CME credits per year).

The ABO provides a menu of acceptable SACME options on its website and accepts submissions for new courses and events that meet the following criteria:

  • The activity must have a learning objective that is relevant to the physician's ophthalmic treatment of patients.

  • The activity must provide AMA PRA Category 1 Credit obtained through an ACCME-accredited CME provider.

  • The activity must have a self-assessment component.

Acceptance of activities for SACME credit does not imply ABO endorsement.
