Tucson —The American Board of Radiology (ABR) announced this month that CME requirements for board-certified radiologists are revised, effective immediately. The news was delivered in understated fashion through a nondescript bulletin and a tweet. In case you missed it, here are the details.

What’s unchanged:
You’ll still need to earn 75 credits for every three-year period counting back from March 1st of each year, some of which are SAM/SA-CME.

What’s new:
Your SAM/SA-CME requirement depends on whether you completed the minimum required questions in the ABR Online Longitudinal Assessment (OLA) in the preceding year:

  • If you met last year’s OLA requirement, you’ll need just 15 SAM/SA-CME looking back 3 years from March 1st.
  • Otherwise, you’ll still need 25 SAM/SA-CME looking back 3 years from March 1st.

The upcoming ABR deadline for CME and SAM/SA-CME is March 1.
