CME

Created:   6/29/2012
Contains:  65 items

The American Association for the Surgery of Trauma (AAST) is now providing AMA PRA Category 1 CreditsTM with a self-assessment component as required for the fulfillment of Part 2 of the American Board of Surgery Maintenance of Certification (MOC) Program to Physicians for selected articles from The Journal of Trauma and Acute Care Surgery.

Nurses and non-physicians can now also claim Continuing Education credits by reading journal articles and completing online courses. For members of the American College of Surgeons, CME credit will be reported to the ACS quarterly and will then appear in your individual My CME Portal for reporting purposes. At the completion of each course, you will receive a PDF certificate for your files.

CONTENT: The AAST’s online courses consist of The Journal of Trauma and Acute Care Surgery CME articles, in addition to archived AAST Grand Rounds, previous annual meeting Master Surgeon Lectures, and topic-specific presentations. All courses are currently one hour and worth AMA PRA Category 1 CreditsTM. Each course is assigned a suggested level and topic category to help you determine which course bets fits your needs. New content is added monthly, so please check back often.

COST: All online courses are offered free of charge to all AAST members. The Journal of Trauma and Acute Care Surgery subscribers have complimentary access to all courses relating to journal content, but a fee will apply when accessing all other course types. A nominal fee will apply for all nonmembers. Once you have paid for or completed a course, you can revisit the course as many times and as often as you like.

ACCESS: Below please find the list of all available J Trauma Acute Care Surg CME articles to date. To claim credit, first use the links below to read an article, and then access the associated online course on the AAST website under the e-Learning/CME tab.

QUESTIONS: Should you have questions or need any assistance completing a course or receiving your CME, please contact the AAST at 800-789-4006 or aast@aast.org.
