Images in Transplantation
Please note: To take advantage of this new opportunity, you will need to register at the Wiley Health Learning website, which allows your CME credits to be appropriately attributed to you.
Images in Transplantation is a monthly, journal-based CME feature brought to you by the American Journal of Transplantation. Edited by Sandy Feng and Douglas W. Hanto, Images in Transplantation takes a case-based approach, providing you the opportunity to explore images illustrating a clinical problem and enhance your knowledge by answering CME questions.
Each activity has clear educational objectives and provides the opportunity for you to earn 1 AMA PRA Category 1 Credit™ upon completion of the activity online. Images in Transplantation activities provide Category 1 CME and self-assessment credits toward Part 2 of the ABS MOC Program and/or on the CME section of the activity.
ABS Diplomates can also apply to the AMA to receive AMA PRA Category 1 Credit for certification or recertification by the ABS or another ABMS board. The AMA awards 60 credits for certification or recertification after September 1, 2010, and 25 credits prior to that date. See the AMA website and direct CME application (PDF) for details; the number of credits awarded for an activity is determined solely by the AMA.
Diplomates who obtain certification or recertification from another ABMS board may use this toward the ABS' CME requirements, but must obtain the AMA PRA Category 1 Credits for it as documentation. See the ABS site for details.
Submit Your Images for Consideration

Information on CME Credits for Authors
Authors of journal-based CME articles and questions for assessments are not eligible to complete the activity and claim 1 AMA PRA Category 1 Credit™ for that article, as they are involved in its development. However, the lead author (first listed) of the article can claim ten (10) AMA PRA Category 1 Credits™ per article, directly from the AMA.
Credit may be claimed for publishing, as the lead author (first listed), a peer-reviewed article in a journal included in the MEDLINE bibliographic database. This does not include editing activities or contributions to books.
Documentation: Attach a reprint or copy of the page(s) of the journal which include the name of the author listed first, the name of the journal, and the date published.
Certificate dates: If multiple articles are submitted, you will receive one certificate indicating the date range for the past three years in which you are claiming credit for published articles, with the start date being the publication date of the earliest article submitted, and the end date being the publication date of the most recent article submitted. If you submit articles that published more than three years ago you will receive a separate certificate for these activities.
To claim credit: Download the Direct Credit application and submit the completed application along with the required documentation and appropriate processing fee. Full instructions are found on the Direct Credit application.
