Recording for Your Records
**For Physician credit:
To claim credit, complete the certificate of attendance as your record of the credits you earn each day. The credit claiming worksheets (attached to the certificate of attendance) list all sessions eligible for CME credit and the maximum number of credits available for each of them. Use these worksheets to track the credits you earn each day and to calculate your daily credit total. Claim credit only for the time you actually attended each session. Then, record your daily totals on your certificate of attendance. Keep the certificate of attendance and worksheets for your own records.
**For Allied Health Credit:
Allied health professionals and international attendees may request a certificate of attendance to meet their own needs at the CME/AAP Information Booth or Faculty Lounge in the Boston Convention & Exhibition Center, Westin Waterfront and Renaissance Waterfront Hotels.
