The American College of Rheumatology is accredited by the Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education to provide continuing medical
education for physicians.
The American College of Rheumatology designates its educational activities for AMA PRA Category 1 CreditsTM and offers activities designated for MOC and CE credits. Physicians should claim only the credit commensurate with the extent of their participation in any CME activity.
Non-physician participants may claim hours to receive a Certificate of Participation for the extent of their participation in any activity
designated for AMA PRA Category 1 CreditsTM.
We recently updated our process to claim CME credit. CME must be claimed within one year of the activity end date. For Annual Meetings that took place prior to 2017, the deadline to claim credit has passed. If you would like to request a copy of your certificate for previous years, contact email@example.com or 404-633-3777, ext. 320.
TIP: We recommend that you use a laptop or desktop computer to claim CME.

Physicians may earn AMA PRA Category 1 CreditTM for participation in select international educational activities. With an approved credit conversion
application form and fee, the AMA will convert CME credit issued to physicians for participation in live and e-learning activities certified by the European
Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education (EACCME), the accrediting arm of the UEMS, to AMA PRA Category 1 CreditTM. Print the
AMA EACCME Credit Conversion Form
Visit the AMA’s website for detailed instructions on converting international CME credit through AMA.
AMA PRA Category 2 CreditTM is self-designated and claimed by individual physicians for participation in activities not certified for AMA PRA Category 1
CreditTM that meet certain AMA PRA defined criteria. Download the AMA’s PRA Booklet to view AMA PRA criteria for category 2 credit.
Category 2 Documentation: The physician should self-claim credit for ap¬propriate AMA PRA Category 2 CreditTM activities and document activity title
or description, subject or content area, date(s) of participation and number of credits claimed. Physicians may not claim AMA PRA Category 2 CreditTM
for an activity for which the physician has claimed AMA PRA Category 1 CreditTM. Each physician is responsible for claiming and maintaining a record
of their AMA PRA Category 2 CreditTM.
Credit Calculation: as with live activities, physicians should claim credit based on their participation time with 60 minutes of participation equal
to one (1) AMA PRA Category 2 CreditTM; credit is claimed in 15 minute or 0.25 credit increments; must round to the nearest quarter hour.
For more information, download the AMA PRA Booklet.
If you are enrolled in the ABIM MOC program you can claim MOC points after successfully completing an online CARE activity. To claim MOC points, follow the instructions below.
Note: We are in the process of updating our MOC point transmission system. This means that your points will not be reflected in your ABIM Physician Portal until the late fall 2018.
