As an accredited provider designating activities for AMA PRA category 1 credit™, the AAOS must keep a record of the actual number of credits awarded to individual physician participants in the activities they sponsor. Physician participants are ethically obligated to claim only those credits that he/she actually spent in an educational activity. Credits are calculated on an hour for hour basis. It is the physician’s responsibility to claim credits based on actual hour for hour participation. Example: a two-hour instructional course is worth up to 2 hours, depending on the actual time spent in the activity.
The online AAOS Learning Portfolio helps you keep track of your MOC progress. View your earned credits by event and year and check what you need to complete.
