SAMS The ABR defines “self-assessment CME” as interactive learning opportunities that use self-assessment tools to help learners reflect on their practice and identify their individual needs. Approved courses are indicated with a symbol that reads “SAMS”.
UGRA The Ultrasound Guided Regional Anesthesia (UGRA) Education and Clinical Training Portfolio is a joint initiative from ASA and the American Society of Regional Anesthesia and Pain Medicine (ASRA) designed for anesthesiologists who wish to distinguish themselves in the field and provide evidence of training and experience to share with employers. The program guides participants through specific criteria to demonstrate knowledge and achievement in UGRA procedures. The program requires participants to progressively build knowledge through participation in specific CME activities and validate experience via case log documentation. The completed portfolio contains data that defines all UGRA achievements, the criteria required to meet the achievement and evidence of how those criteria were met. Approved courses are indicated with a symbol that reads “UGRA”. One hour of learning is equal to 1 CME credit.
