The American Association for the Surgery of Trauma (AAST) provides AMA PRA Category 1 CreditsTM with a self-assessment component 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 bests 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: To claim credit, click this link: e-Learning/CME tab. If you are a nonmember and do not have a subscription to the journal, you will need to register on the AAST website.

If you are a journal subscriber, but not a member of AAST, you will need to log in once you click the link above – you MUST log in with your email address that is attached to your journal subscription.
