Hot Topic

Participate in Hot Topic Webinars and earn CME/CMLE/SAM credits!

The American Society of Cytopathology recognizes your need to keep up-to-date and be informed about new and emerging medical knowledge.  The Hot Topics are meant to close any gaps in knowledge and supply you the education you need NOW!  This includes new practice guidelines, new clinically relevant techniques in practice and research, and timely practical topics of interest generated from the ASC Listserv, ASC Educational Needs Idea Box and, evaluations submitted through ASC educational activities.

Use any of the above avenues to help the ASC produce periodically scheduled “Hot Topic” webinars that will address your needs.  

A Hot Topic webinar will be presented by a knowledgeable and experienced speaker, ranging from 30 minutes to one hour.  The value of CME/CMLE/SAM credits depends on the duration.  (Ex. 30 minutes is .5 credit and one hour is 1 credit).  Credits are available for three years from the live presentation date. 

The live presentation will be recorded, archived, and made available to purchase and view later, individually, as a group, on-the-go or as an addition to your institutions library.
