Note to pharmacists: Due to restrictions with the online survey to document your credits, you will need to indicate 1.75 hours attended (survey is set up to calculate ACCME hours which are calculated differently from pharmacy CEUs). While your attendance certificate will state 1.75 hours due to this automated system, your NABP profile and transcript will reflect the 2.0 hours.

If you require a paper certificate with the 2.0 hours due to this survey restriction, please fully complete the online survey to document your attendance and then contact Jim Ybarra at ybarraj@mail.amc.edu

Continuing education credits are limited to those listed above. Disciplines with other continuing education requirements for their professional licenses are encouraged to submit evidence of their participation for reciprocity of credits. All participants will receive an attendance certificate.
