PLEASE NOTE: In July of 2022, AAST began accrediting its educational activities with CineMed. Subsequently, AAST will not offer regulatory mandate credits or self-assessment credits moving forward. If you wish to have your credits applied to your ACS account, please forward your AAST annual meeting certificate to their staff at firstname.lastname@example.org.
This year, the ABS announced that it will no longer accept self-uploads of CME activities. AAST is aware of this and is taking the correct steps to ensure your annual meeting activity will be reported to ABS bi-weekly beginning October 2nd.
