Participants will earn MOC points equivalent to the amount of CME credits claimed for the activity. It is the CME activity provider's responsibility to submit participant completion information to ACCME for the purpose of granting ABIM MOC credit.
The Suturing STAR Certificate Program will provide standardized, evidence-based education, training and assessment in suturing through a unique blend of self-study, didactic, and intensive, standardized hands-on training taught by nationally-known experts in the field.
This program is the only opportunity to become familiar with endoscopic suturing using state-of-the-art data and technique by the most experienced faculty, in dedicated, small group, hands-on experience.
