Accreditation and Designation Statements
The Radiological Society of North America (RSNA®) is
accredited by the Accreditation Council for Continuing
Medical Education (ACCME) to provide continuing medical
education for physicians.
The RSNA designates this live activity for a maximum of
93.75 AMA PRA Category 1 Credits™. Physicians should
claim only the credit commensurate with the extent of their
participation in the activity.
The Commission on Accreditation of Medical Physics
Education Program (CAMPEP) has approved the direct
transfer of AMA PRA Category 1 Credit™ to MPCEC on
a credit-for-credit basis for medical physicists.
Self-Assessment Modules (SAMs)
RSNA offers self-assessment modules that meet the
American Board of Radiology’s criteria for a selfassessment activity in the ABR Maintenance of Certification
program. Participants can earn 1.50 SAM credit for each
SAM course in addition to the AMA PRA Category 1 Credit™.
The RSNA Annual Meeting In-Person SAMs is an
Accredited Self-Assessment Program (SAP-Section 3)
as defined by the new Maintenance of Certification
program (MOC) of the Royal College of Physicians and
Surgeons of Canada (RCPSC), and has been approved
by the Canadian Association of Radiologists (CAR) for a
maximum of 1.50 credit hours.
indicates a course being offered as a self-assessment
module (SAM).
