California and Florida CEUs for Lab Personnel
ACMG applied for CEU approval with the state of California in the fall of 2008. At this time we are still awaiting confirmation/approval from California, ACMG staff has made repeated requests for this process to be finalized, with no response as to status from the state of California. We are informing attendees that since this process has taken so long, and we cannot guarantee the credit by a certain date, if you need to have proof of credit for an upcoming re-certification or re-licensure, that you not count on these credits at this time.
ACMG is approved by the Florida Board of Clinical Laboratory Personnel as CE Provider # 50-11878
In accordance with the Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education and the policy of the American College of Medical Genetics, before their presentations, all faculty, speakers and moderators must disclose the existence of any financial interest and/or other relationship(s) they might have with the manufacturer(s) or provider(s) of any commercial product(s) or service(s) to be discussed during their presentation: receiving a salary, royalty, intellectual property rights, consulting fee, honoraria, ownership interest (e.g., stocks, stock options or other ownership interest, excluding diversified mutual funds), or other financial benefit. Financial benefits are usually associated with roles such as employment, management position, independent contractor (including contracted research), consulting, speaking and teaching, membership on advisory committees or review panels, board membership, and other activities for which remuneration is received or expected. Disclosures will be included in the on-site Program Guide.Verification of HIPAA AuthorizationThe ACMG supports medical information privacy. While the ACMG is not a “covered entity” under HIPAA 1996 and therefore is not required to meet these standards, ACMG wishes to take reasonable steps to ensure that the presentation of individually identifiable health information at ACMG-sponsored events has been properly authorized. Before their presentations, ACMG requires all faculty, speakers and moderators to confirm that they either will not present any individually-identifiable health information or that they have obtained and maintained the appropriate executed HIPAA forms for the individual health information they intend to present.
