CME Information
The American Academy of Ophthalmology is accredited by the Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education to provide continuing medical education for physicians.

The American Academy of Ophthalmology designates this enduring material for a maximum of 10 AMA PRA Category 1 Credits™. Physicians should claim only the credit commensurate with the extent of their participation in the activity.

About the BCSC
The Academy's Basic and Clinical Science Course (BCSC) is ophthalmology’s most extensive compilation of scientific research and clinical experience. It is continually updated by a faculty of more than 80 expert ophthalmologists. Each of the 13 sections includes fundamental clinical knowledge; numerous tables, photos and illustration; self-assessment questions with answers; and opportunities for earning AMA PRA Category 1 Credits™.

Beginning with the 2013–2014 edition, the Academy and the European Board of Ophthalmology (EBO) have partnered to make the BCSC the standard text for all European ophthalmology training programs. The EBO now recommends the BCSC as the primary educational resource for European trainees and ophthalmologists studying for the annual EBO Diploma Exam. This partnership allows the EBO to contribute to the ongoing development of the BCSC so it serves the needs of trainees and practicing ophthalmologists in both Europe and the U.S.
