CME Credits

The American Association of Hip and Knee Surgeons (AAHKS) is accredited by the Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education (ACCME) to provide continuing medical education for physicians.

The American Association of Hip and Knee Surgeons (AAHKS) designates this live activity for a maximum of 18 AMA PRA Category 1 Credits™. Physicians should claim only the credit commensurate with the extent of their participation in the activity. 

Virtual vs. In-Person Attendance

Virtual registration includes real-time access to the General Session livestream with the ability to ask questions and participate through the AAHKS mobile app. Virtual registration also includes post-meeting recorded content through our education platform, LEARN. CME credit is the same for in-person and livestream attendees (up to 18 CME).

PLEASE NOTE: Virtual attendees MUST login to the meeting livestream in real-time in order to get CME credit as if they were in Dallas. If you don’t log in to watch the livestream, you may still earn CME credits by viewing recordings of the Annual Meeting sessions, but you must also pass quizzes on the content. The course will be available to you shortly after the Annual Meeting.  

If you attended in Dallas, or logged in to the livestream, please look for an email message from AAHKS a few days after the meeting. For more information about the Annual Meeting, please check AAHKS website/reach out to AAHKS Staff via the main line. This will give you a link to complete an evaluation and claim your CME credit.
