CME Credits
CME, CE, and contact hours credits will be provided to physicians, technologists and nurses. The available credit award for RAD-AID Conference will be confirmed shortly, subject to approval of American College of Radiology and Virginia Nurses Association. In prior years, physician attendees received 7.75 CME credits for RAD-AID Conference, participating technologists received 8-9 credits, and nurses received 8.0 credits (Continuing Nursing Education contact hours), which we anticipate will be similar to credit awards for 2019 RAD-AID Conference attendees.
