CME and MOC Credit

2023 CME Statement

The 2023 Crohn’s & Colitis Congress has been planned and implemented in accordance with the accreditation requirements and policies of the Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education (ACCME) through the joint providership of the American Gastroenterological Association (AGA) Institute and the Crohn’s & Colitis Foundation. The AGA Institute is accredited by the ACCME to provide continuing medical education for physicians.

The AGA Institute designates this live activity for a maximum of 17.0 AMA PRA Category 1 Credits™. Physicians should claim only the credit commensurate with the extent of their participation in the activity.

In accordance with the Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education’s Standards for Integrity and Independence in Continuing Education, all faculty and planning partners must disclose all financial relationship(s) or other relationship(s) with ineligible companies held within the past 24 months. The AGA Institute implements a mechanism to identify and resolve all relevant financial relationships prior to delivering the educational activity to learners

Financial Disclosure

All faculty and planning partners must disclose all financial relationships or other relationships with ineligible companies held within the past 24 months. Ineligible companies are those whose primary business is producing, marketing, selling, re-selling, or distributing healthcare products used by or on patients.  The AGA Institute implements a mechanism to identify and mitigate all relevant financial relationships prior to delivering the educational activity to learners. Financial relationships are relevant if the following three conditions are met for the prospective person who will control content of the education: 

  • A financial relationship, in any amount, exists between the person in control of content and an ineligible company.  
  • The financial relationship existed during the past 24 months.  
  • The content of the education is related to the products of an ineligible company with whom the person has a financial relationship.
