ACR Education Center Now Offering Significant Boost in SAM Credit

May 30, 2014 — The American College of Radiology’s (ACR) Education Center courses have been qualified to meet the American Board of Radiology’s (ABR) criteria for a self-assessment (SAM) activity and are designated for up to 25 SAM credits toward the ABR Maintenance of Certification program. This is a significant increase in SAMs, and can allow radiologists to complete all of the SAM requirements for MOC with just one educational activity.

The state-of-the-art ACR Education Center, located in Reston, Va., which opened in 2008, has helped more than 7,000 radiologists meet their MOC requirements while honing their skills in a wide variety of clinical topics.

“Taking a course at the ACR Education Center in unlike any other learning experience,” said James Borgstede, M.D., FACR, ABR President. “It is truly unique in the number of cases offered, individualized attention from renowned faculty and the ability to gain confidence in your skills while using your own workstation. I personally would recommend the ACR Education Center to anyone needing to improve their clinical skills. The additional SAMs are a great bonus.”

In 2008, the ACR Education Center opened its doors with two courses. Today, the training center offers 15 course topics, offered multiple times each year and covering a wide range of subspecialties. A comprehensive list of available course offerings can be found
