60th Annual Spring Symposium -- Self-Assessment Module Credit (SAM)

This activity also incorporates the Self-Assessment Modules (SAMs) credits required by the American Board of Pathology’s Maintenance of Certification (MOC) Program. Physicians may claim up to 7.25 SAM credits for this activity. Claimed credit should commensurate with the extent of participation in the activity.
