CARE 2020 Beta Test

Date:

Expires August 6, 2020

Program Information

The ACR is seeking volunteer learners to test the new CARE 2020 program before its official release. The beta test contains 67 questions, 60 of which will be selected for the final CARE 2020 activity. Answer submissions from volunteer learners will be statistically reviewed for discrepancies allowing the ACR to refine the quality and clinical relevancy of each CARE question before the activity’s official release to the public.

The CARE 2020 Beta Test will be available until August 6. Volunteer learners who complete the entire activity (all 67 questions) by August 6 will receive complimentary access to the finalized CARE 2020 activity, which will be released in September 2020. The CARE 2020 activity released in September will offer CME credits and MOC points.

Note: References for each question are listed in the program but links to the articles will not be available until the official CARE 2020 release in September.
