CME Opportunity

Continuing medical education (CME) credits and maintenance of certification (MOC) points are available for reading select articles published in Vascular Medicine. This opportunity is made possible through a joint partnership with University of Virginia School of Medicine (UVASOM). There are no fees for the credits; however, there may be a fee to download the article from the Vascular Medicine website if you do not have an active subscription or journal access.

Please note: MOC credit is available only for articles published after January 2019. ABIM credit will be reported every 60 days. Credit received after November 30 of each year will be applied to the following year.

Learning Objectives:

  • Improve knowledge, competency, performance, and patient outcomes in vascular medicine
  • Recognize clinical manifestations of common and uncommon vascular diseases
  • Review diagnostic approach and medical, endovascular, and surgical therapies for vascular diseases
  • Identify knowledge gaps in the field of vascular medicine and opportunities for future research
