With more than 250 hours of Category 1 CME in 46 therapeutic categories at AAPA 2020, you’ll find everything you need to keep your clinical skills sharp. Choose from Small Interactive Sessions (SIS), Workshops, Fast 15 (quick updates on changes to clinical guidelines) and traditional lectures to earn up to 32 hours of CME in less than a week.
AAPA Accreditation Statement
AAPA has reviewed and approved the CME programs during the conference for AAPA Category 1 CME or AAPA Category 1 Self-Assessment CME credit hours as indicated. PAs should claim only those hours actually spent participating in the CME activity.
These programs were planned in accordance with AAPA’s CME Standards for Live Programs and for Commercial Support of Live Programs.
For NCCPA certification maintenance ONLY, NCCPA will now apply an additional 50% weighting when these self-assessment credits are logged for NCCPA certification maintenance purposes. PAs should log up to a maximum of Total Credits Earned (see credits on certificate) of AAPA Category 1 Self-Assessment CME credits, as the additional weighting will be automatically applied by NCCPA.
CME lectures, Small Interactive Sessions (SIS), Fast 15 sessions, and Workshops that have CME numbers (ex. N20###) are eligible for AAPA Category 1 CME or AAPA Category 1 Self-Assessment CME credit. Check the Conference Scheduler or AAPA app for sessions that carry self-assessment credit.
