Echocardiography-Specific Maintenance of Certification (MOC) Activities Provided by ASE

Live Learning Sessions:

26th Annual Scientific Sessions, June 12-16, 2015 – Boston, MA

Description: The Maintenance of Certification (MOC) session will be held on Friday, June 12th from 1:30pm – 5:00pm. To demonstrate a public commitment to remain highly skilled and knowledgeable throughout their careers, medical professionals must satisfy the evolving requirements for Board Certification and MOC. In this session, ASE will help physicians meet those certification and recertification needs while earning knowledge points towards ABIM’s Self-Evaluation of Medical Knowledge requirement. This session highlights several key topics through a study of clinical patient scenarios provided and analyzed by field experts. Guided by faculty moderators, topics covered will include: cardiomyopathies, aortic regurgitation, endocarditis, mitral stenosis, Doppler, congenital heart disease, closure devices/device placement, image optimization, CRT, stress echocardiography and more.

Registration for this session includes access to the ASEUniversity III: Case-Based Learning Volume 2. Registrants will be awarded 10 ABIM MOC points upon completion of the module.

Additional fee required. Visit www.asescientificsessions.org for more information and to register.
