Accreditation, CME & MOC Information

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

The American College of Gastroenterology designates this live activity for a maximum of 1 AMA PRA Category 1 Credit™ (1.5 AMA PRA Category 1 Credits™ for special evening webinars). Physicians should claim only the credit commensurate with the extent of their participation in the activity.

Successful completion of this CME activity, which includes participation in the evaluation component, enables the participant to earn up to 1 Medical Knowledge MOC point (1.5 Medical Knowledge MOC points for special evening webinars) in the American Board of Internal Medicine’s (ABIM) Maintenance of Certification (MOC) program. Participants will earn MOC points equivalent to the amount of CME credits claimed for the activity. It is the CME activity provider’s responsibility to submit participant completion information to ACCME for the purpose of granting ABIM MOC credit.

Post-Activity CME & MOC Evaluation Information
Following the live webinar, all attendees from the webinar will be sent a link to the CME and MOC evaluation. ABIM MOC Points will be submitted to ABIM directly and will be visible on your ABIM account approximately 3-5 days later.

Please visit https://webinars.gi.org/home/index to submit your evaluation for a webinar that you attended or to print your CME certificate.

2021 Virtual Grand Rounds
Please complete your CME evaluation and MOC assessment soon after the activity. ABIM Board Certified physicians need to complete their MOC activities by December 31, 2021 in order for the MOC points to count toward any MOC requirements that are due by the end of the year. ACG will continue to submit participant completion data for the ACG 2021 Virtual Grand Rounds webinars until March 1, 2022, and any ABIM Board Certified physician who experienced a negative status change as a direct result of insufficient MOC points will have their status adjusted once the required number of points have been earned. No MOC credit may be awarded after March 1, 2022 for this activity.

2020 Virtual Grand Rounds
Please complete your CME evaluation and MOC assessment soon after the activity. No CME or MOC credit will be awarded after March 1, 2021 for this activity.
