How do I claim my CME
What is the deadline to register?
Registration will close completely at 11:59 PM ET on October 27, 2020. This will give participants enough time to access all the content and claim CME credits before the content expires on the virtual platform. All session content is available on-demand until November 10, 2020.
Will there be a registration fee for the ASE 2020: Virtual Experience?
Yes, there will be a registration fee associated with this virtual offering. The fee will be much less than fees associated with a live course. There will be an option to register with CME and without CME, so there should be an option for the needs of everyone.
How many CME will be included in the Virtual Experience Live Broadcast registration?
ASE is accredited by the Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education to provide continuing medical education for physicians. ASE designates this activity for a maximum of 44 AMA PRA Category 1 Credit™ pending approval for all attendees (except non-CME registrants). You will be able to claim CME credits beginning Tuesday, August 11, 2020 through December 1, 2020. Instructions for claiming CME credits will be available closer to the live broadcast start date. You can also earn up to 44 MOC points. Click here for all CME/MOC details.
What are the system requirements to access ASE 2020: Virtual Experience?
All you will need is your computer and a stable and reliable internet connection. This is essentially no different to watching a video on YouTube. If you can watch YouTube, then you will be able to stream on the website with no problems.
How long will I have access to the content provided in the live broadcast taking place August 8-10, 2020?
You will have unlimited access to this content on-demand until November 10th, 2020 (90 days) following the broadcast. If you cannot participate in the live broadcast on August 8-10, 2020, you will still have the opportunity to watch all live & pre-recorded sessions. All of the live sessions will be recorded, giving registrants the chance to still earn the full 44 CME credits. To learn more, click here.

Content from 11 tracks will be included in the live broadcast Virtual Experience. These include: Circulation, Early Career, Imaging Essentials (including Sonography), Innovation/Technology, Ischemia, Myocardium/Function, Pediatric/Congenital, Perioperative, Point of Care, Special Sessions, and Valves.
