Accreditation: The American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons is accredited by the Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education to provide continuing medical education (CME) for physicians.

U.S Physicians:  The AAOS designates for 2024 this live activity for a maximum of 23.0 AMA PRA Category 1 Credits™. Physicians should claim only the credit commensurate with the extent of their participation in the activity.

International Physicians: The AMA has determined that physicians not licensed in the United States but who participate in this CME activity are eligible for AMA PRA Category 1 Credits™.

Allied Health Professionals: The AAOS is not accredited to offer credit for nurses and other Allied Health Professionals. To determine if activities offering AMA PRA Category 1 Credits™ are acceptable for your licensing continuing education or certification needs please get in touch with the relevant organizations directly.

To ensure a seamless on-site experience, please note this important information about the AAOS Annual Meeting CME Transcript System: 

  • You cannot claim CME credit for any educational activities you participate in before you officially check-in to the meeting by visiting the Registration Desk and picking up your meeting badge. For instance, if you arrive at the meeting on Tuesday but do not check-in until Wednesday, you will not be able to claim CME credits for your Tuesday attendance.
  • Once you are checked-in to the meeting, you can access an electronic version of your CME Certificate of Attendance.
  • Printing stations are not available at the meeting. When on-site, visit the CME Certificate of Attendance kiosk to email yourself your AAOS certificate, as well as certificates from participating Specialty Societies.
  • You can begin logging your CME credits in your transcripts approximately 2 weeks after the meeting. Claim your CME here!

Friday, February 16, Specialty Society Program CME Hours.
