Visitors who wish to apply for continuing medical education credits for IAS–USA-sponsored activities on the Internet may do so by submitting completed evaluation and registration forms. This information is not linked to the user visit to the activity; registration information submitted is retained only as evidence of CME credits earned (as required by the Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education). Registration lists are confidential. The IAS–USA does not rent or sell registration or address lists.
