Continuing Medical Education (CME)
Please note that the only Society educational component of EB 2018 that is eligible for CME credit is the ASIP 2018 Annual Meeting.
CME Accreditation Statement
This activity (“American Society for Investigative Pathology [ASIP] 2018 Annual Meeting”) has been planned and implemented in accordance with the Essential Areas and policies of the Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education (ACCME) through the joint providership of the American Society for Clinical Pathology (ASCP) and the American Society for Investigative Pathology (ASIP). ASCP is accredited by the ACCME to provide continuing medical education for physicians.
Please note that the designation of the maximum number of AMA PRA Category 1 Credit(s)TM for this “live” educational activity will be announced prior to the meeting.
Educational Objective/Target Audience
The objective of the ASIP 2018 Annual Meeting is to increase basic and applied pathology knowledge, and to provide a forum for the exchange of new research by scientists and investigators. The ASIP 2018 Annual Meeting is designed to meet the participants’ education needs in the physician competency area of Medical Knowledge, as defined by the Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education (ACGME) and the American Board of Medical Specialties (ABMS), and to support participants’ lifelong learning towards a goal of promoting patient safety and improving patient care and is specifically targeted to graduate and medical students, postdoctoral fellows, research scientists, clinical practitioners, and medical education professionals.
At the completion of the ASIP 2018 Annual Meeting, participants should be able to:
- discuss the research underway and/or the current topics relevant to their areas of interest in pathology;
- demonstrate a gained level of knowledge of the methods and techniques being used by researchers and practitioners in the field;
- utilize information and data that leads to improvements in human health.
Disclosure of Financial Relationships and Resolution of Conflicts of Interest
In order to ensure balance, independence, objectivity and scientific rigor in all its educational activities, and in accordance with ACCME Standards, the ASCP requires that all individuals in a position to influence and/or control the content of ASCP CME activities disclose to the ASCP and subsequently to learners whether they do or do not have any relevant financial relationships with proprietary entities producing health care goods or services that are discussed in CME activities. Faculty are asked to use generic names in any discussion of therapeutic options, to base patient care recommendations on scientific evidence and to base information regarding commercial products/services on scientific methods generally accepted by the medical community. All ASCP CME activities are evaluated by participants for the presence of any commercial bias and thus input is used to subsequent CME planning decisions. The primary purpose of this “live” CME activity is educational and the comments, opinions, and/or recommendations expressed by the faculty or authors are their own and not those of ASCP or ASIP.
Please contact the ASIP Education Office (firstname.lastname@example.org, 301-634-7440) if you have any questions regarding CME.
