Montréal, Québec – For those planning to participate in the 55th Annual Meeting of the Teratology Society, an additional perk has been added to the repertoire – an opportunity to earn continuing medical education (CME) credits.

Medical professionals required to obtain CME credits for license maintenance purposes can participate in the 2015 Teratology Society CME Program.

"The ability to earn CME credit during the annual meeting is convenient and another great perk of attending this important gathering," said Sonja Rasmussen, MD, a Teratology Society member since 2003. "It's a huge advantage!"

This event is approved for up to 23 credits by the Office for Continuing Professional Development. The Office for CPD, Faculty of Medicine, McGill University is fully accredited by the Committee on Accreditation of Canadian Medical Education (CACME).

This event is an Accredited Group Learning Activity as defined by the Maintenance of Certification program of the Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons of Canada.

Through an agreement between the Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons of Canada and the American Medical Association, physicians may convert Royal College MOC credits to AMA PRA Category 1 Credits™. Information on the process to convert Royal College MOC credit to AMA credit can be found at www.ama-assn.org/go/internationalcme.

Each physician should claim only credit commensurate with the extent of their participation in the activity.

All CME program participants are required to provide their full name, license number, and their complete contact information. To ensure you will receive your CME certificate at the meeting please complete the CME Information Form no later than Friday, June 19. CME Program participants will also be required to sign the daily sign-in sheets and designate the credit type and credit quantity.

For more information about the CME Program and CME credits please contact Becca Isakower at bisakower@teratology.org.
