Accreditation Statement

The American College of Rheumatology is accredited by the Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education to provide continuing medical education for physicians. See the ACR’s CME Mission Statement. For more information, download the AMA PRA Booklet.

Designation Statement

The American College of Rheumatology designates this Other activity (blended credit encompassing both Live Virtual and On Demand views) for a maximum of 209.25 AMA PRA Category 1 Credits™. Physicians should claim only the credit commensurate with the extent of their participation in the activity.

CME credit must be claimed by 11:59 PM ET, November 4, 2021.

Maintenance of Certification

Upon submission of a reflective statement with key takeaways from the meeting, MOC points will be applied for ABIM diplomates to the ABIM number and date of birth provided when you registered. Points are sent nightly to ACCME and then transferred to the ABIM Physician Portal. Please allow at least 48 hours for points display in the portal.

MOC points must be claimed by 11:59 PM ET, November 4, 2021.

Claiming CME/MOC Credit

As a courtesy, participants will receive an email by November 30, 2020 with a list of sessions you joined. While the list of sessions will include the associated maximum amount of credit that can be claimed, the AMA requires that you claim credit only for time spent actively participating in educational sessions. Credit must be claimed in increments of 0.25, with the maximum of 209.25 credits for the entire meeting (includes extended programming on November 10, 2020, November 21, 2020, and on-demand access until March 11, 2021). Credit should be claimed all at once after you finish participating in the activity. If you attempt to claim credit that exceeds the maximum available AMA PRA Category 1 Credits™, the system will default to the maximum credit(s) available for the entire meeting. Please contact acr20@rheumatology.org with any credit claiming questions.
