Calculate Your Credit Total

Your AMA PRA Category 1 Credits™ will calculate via the Conference Platform

Add sessions to ‘My Schedule’ by selecting the star icon next to each session. Your credit total will appear at the bottom of ‘My Schedule’ based on your selections. Only content in which you participated should be selected. Physicians should claim only the credit commensurate with the extent of their participation in the activity.

Surgeons requiring that credits are reported to the American Board of Surgery must complete this survey before completing the below steps to claim credit. This will ensure that the ABS will be notified of your participation.
