Continuing Medical Education (CME)
The SfN annual meeting is a forum for educating physicians in the neuroscience field. Learn more about SfN’s CME Mission (PDF).
By attending CME-designated lectures, symposia, minisymposia, and basic-translational-clinical roundtables, physicians gain a broad overview of the field and detailed information about recent research.
A meeting attendee seeking CME credit may use a combination of the activities described below to claim a maximum of 35 AMA PRA Category 1 Credits™ at Neuroscience 2018.
It is important that physicians comprehend the basic science that underlies clinical medicine. SfN’s annual meeting is the premier venue for this educational opportunity. Physicians learn about the most up-to-date, cutting-edge discoveries regarding the brain and nervous system. They also gain more knowledge about desirable physician attributes, as dictated by the IOM, ACGME, and ABMS.
Global Learning Objective: Physicians will integrate the most up-to-date information and research on the mechanism, treatment, and diagnosis of conditions related to neurological and psychiatric disorders into their diagnostic and therapeutic modalities of practice to determine the best treatment for the patient.
Accreditation: SfN is accredited by the Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education to provide continuing medical education for physicians.
Credit designation per session is as follows.
- Symposia: SfN designates this live activity for a maximum of 2.5 AMA PRA Category 1 Credits™

For those enrolling prior to the meeting, a CME processing fee of $100 is charged in addition to the annual meeting registration fee. After October 2, the CME processing fee will be $115 online and $135 on-site at the annual meeting. Purchase orders are not accepted as payment.
To enroll for CME credits, check the appropriate box on the annual meeting registration form and include the CME processing fee. Attendees may also enroll for CME on-site at the annual meeting at the CME counter in the Attendee Services area at the San Diego Convention Center. Retroactive CME enrollment (after the annual meeting has ended) is not permitted.
CME registration must be completed before or during the annual meeting. Those who do not register before the conclusion of the meeting will not be able to request CME credits. Two weeks before the meeting, CME registrants will receive an email with the CME Supplemental Program, which contains important information regarding the CME program, including disclosure information and instructions for obtaining CME credits.
CME Credit for Exhibitors
Exhibitors with medical degrees can earn AMA PRA Category 1 Credits™ by registering for the CME program and attending lectures, symposia, minisymposia, and basic-translational-clinical roundtables.
