Is the CE COPE approved?

COPE approval benefits meeting attendees by guaranteeing that courses attended at the meeting will qualify for continuing education credit in most states. It is advised that attendees check with their state board to clarify any special conditions attached to the acceptance. The Academy’s lectures, workshops, symposia, special sessions, Scientific Program paper sessions and Residents Day paper session are COPE approved.

How will I receive my CE certificate?

Following the meeting, a link will be emailed to you to print your CE certificate at your leisure. The email address you provided when registering will be used.

How will my credits be transferred to the OE Tracker database?

After the meeting, the credits for those doctors who had provided their OE Tracker numbers will be sent to ARBO, and the data will be uploaded to their records at www.arbo.org.
