A note on SAMs:

Completion of SAMs is a component of ABP recertification for an increasing number of NAME Fellows. SAMs will be available for most presentations at the NAME 2016 Annual Meeting in Minneapolis. Every submitted abstract will require accompanying SAMs questions and, later, supportive documentation such as a handout or a PowerPoint. The handout or ppt (not necessarily the actual presentation ppt) must answer the SAMs questions. The number of questions per abstract will be based on the anticipated length of the individual presentation. Directions will be on the abstract submission site.

On behalf of NAME Fellows in the ABP Maintenance of Certification program, thank you for contributing to the NAME SAMs program – a component of NAME’s educational mission.
