CME AMA PRA Category 1 CreditsTM.            

Albany Medical College is accredited by the Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education (ACCME) to provide continuing medical education for physicians.

The Albany Medical College designates this Live activity for a maximum of 1.75 AMA PRA Category 1 CreditsTM. Physicians should claim only the credit commensurate with the extent of their participation in the activity.

Nursing Accreditation
The Albany Medical Center is accredited as a provider of continuing nursing education by the American Nurses Credentialing Center's Commission on Accreditation.

ACPE# 0170-9999-14-020-L02-P.

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
