Medical Education Credits
Awarding of Credit
A self-report form was placed in each delegates 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.
