    Click on a specific link below for the credit you wish to claim:

    AAO 2023

    Once you’ve completed the evaluation and entered the hours you’re claiming, click “Submit” ONCE. It may take a few seconds to process the CME claim.

    Academy Members

    CME transcripts that include AAOE Half-Day Coding Sessions, Subspecialty Day and/or AAO 2023 credits will be available to Academy members through the Academy’s CME Central web page.

    The Academy transcript cannot list individual course attendance. It will list only the overall credits claimed for educational activities at AAOE Half-Day Coding Sessions, Subspecialty Day and/or AAO 2023.


    The Academy provides nonmembers with verification of credits earned and reported for a single Academy-sponsored CME activity.

    Proof of Attendance

    You can use the CME credit reporting/ proof-of-attendance letter that is generated when you claim CME for reimbursement or hospital privileges, or for nonmembers who need it to report CME credit.

    If you do not need to claim CME, you can generate just a certificate of attendance.
