Continuing Medical Education Credits

Awarding of Credit

A self-report form was placed in each delegate’s registration bag. The self-report form lists all sessions at the Congress, as well as the type and amount of credit offered.

The WAO Secretariat will collect a true and accurate listing of all sessions attended by each delegate. Delegates must complete the form and fax it to the WAO Secretariat after the Congress. CME hour certificates will be issued based on these reported sessions. If a form is not completed and returned by the delegate, a certificate of credit cannot be issued.
