    Certificates of Attendance

    Certificates of attendance for SBER19 and AER19 will be distributed to those who complete the conference evaluations via email at the end of each day. The certificates will be included on the final day's evaluation, sent on November 17 (SBER) and November 20 (AER).

    Certificates of attendance for the preconference programs will be distributed upon completion of the online evaluation for those programs. These will be sent on November 17.

    Continuing Education (CE) Credit

    Certificates of attendance are useful for obtaining CE credits from various professional associations. Each association's guidelines for acceptance of conference credit hours may differ. Please consult the appropriate association representative for information as to if, and how many, CE credits from SBER19 and AER19 may be used. Attendees of SBER19 can earn up to 6 hours of CE credit; attendees of AER19 can earn up to 18 hours of CE credit. Attendees of preconference programs can earn 6.5 hours of CE credit for full-day programs and 3.25 hours of CE credit for half-day programs.

    Please note, for SBER19 and AER19 we are not offering Continuing Medical Education credits. Please contact the ACCME to determine if, and how many, credits from these types of educational offerings can be used toward CME recertification.
