 Continuing Education Credits

The 2004 AAPM Annual Meeting has been approved for continuing education credit by the Commission on Accreditation of Medical Physics Education Programs, Inc. (CAMPEP). For each hour of verified attendance (this includes scientific sessions, poster discussion sessions, symposia, professional and educational courses), 1 MPCEC hour of credit will be awarded.

To obtain credit, attendees must complete a "Session Evaluation Booklet" and drop the booklets in the Evaluation Form Drop Box, located in the registration area. Look for the booklet in your registration packet. CREDITS WILL ONLY BE ISSUED TO THOSE ATTENDEES WHO RETURN AN EVALUATION BOOKLET. After the meeting, registrants will be sent a transcript that lists a description of the sessions and the number of continuing education credits obtained.
