SAGES University – Now Open!

The American Board of Surgery (ABS) requires 90 hours of Category 1 CME Credits every three years for Maintenance of Certification (MOC). The ABS stipulates: “MOC Part 2 requires the completion of 90 hours of Category I CME over a three-year MOC cycle. All CME must be relevant to the diplomate’s practice, or if clinically inactive, to the broad discipline of surgery.” As of July 1, 2012, the ABS requires that 60 (previously 30) of the 90 Category I CME hours completed over a three-year MOC cycle include a self-assessment activity.

SAGES Continuing Education Committee has been hard at work creating a premier online resource for your learning needs.

SAGES University will feature:

  • Journal Club featuring the Editor’s Pick from Surgical Endoscopy articles – get 1 CME credit per article.
    These self-assessment credits can be used toward fulfilling Part 2 of the ABS MOC program.
  • OSAP (Online Self Assessment Program) featuring 40 SAGES videos – get 0.25 CME credits per video.
    These self-assessment credits can be used toward fulfilling Part 2 of the ABS MOC program.
  • Guidelines featuring the latest SAGES guidelines – get 2 CME credits per Guidelines course. These self-assessment credits can be used toward fulfilling Part 2 of the ABS MOC program.
