 The ANS Scientific Program has been designated 4.0 AMA PRA Category 1 Credits™. We are pleased to announce 4.0 MOC points will be offered for the Scientific Program as well. IMPORTANT! In order to earn MOC, registered attendees must complete the CME evaluation component of the program. This is the online evaluation form you will receive after the meeting. You will be asked to provide your ABOHNS diplomate ID number and DOB (month/day) on the registration form AND the CME evaluation form so please have that readily available. This enables the attendee to meet the expectations of the American Board of Otolaryngology’s Maintenance of Certification (MOC) program and allow the American College of Surgeons, as our accredited provider, to submit attendee completion information to ACCME for the purpose of recognizing your participation.

The ANS Study groups, in their current format, are NOT eligible for CME due to requirements set forth by ACCME.
